With more than thirty papers from leading scientists and technicians, Wetland Creation and Restoration draws upon important new information and provides the first major national assessment by region of the capacity to implement a goal of no-net-loss of wetlands. It is a one-of-a-kind compendium of hands-on information about methods of creating, restoring, and enhancing wetlands. WHAT IS WETLAND RESTORATION? Restoration is a process that helps to transform an area that has been impacted by human or natural activity to an area that can sustain native habitats. Restoring an area is a long process that requires an understanding of an area. Learning about the history of an area and its succession through time, will help determine how to restore an area.

A comparison of plant diversity on project wetlands and similar natural wetlands in Oregon (Kentula and others, ), Connecticut (Confer and Niering, ), and Florida (Brown, ) showed that, although the level of diversity differs with each project, diversity tends to be higher on each project wetland than on its natural counterpart.
This handbook lists the steps necessary to get started on restoring wetlands, starting with how to assess if restoration makes sense for the land. Planning and executing the project, understanding the environmental regulations and the people and programs that can help are all covered.
Restoring our lost and degraded wetlands to their natural state is essential to ensure the health of America’s watersheds. Unless we reverse the tide of wetland loss, the quality of our waters will con-tinue to be threatened and a part of our natural heritage will be lost.
