Testing hydrologic performance standards to evaluate wetland restoration
Defining success in wetland restoration can be difficult and subjective, as each restoration project has distinct goals. When wetland restoration projects fail to achieve their identified goals, it is often due to inadequately restored water levels. Incorrect water levels can lead to invasion by exotic species, or can alter the type of wetland that was supposed to be restored. To provide guidance to local wetland restoration efforts I investigated the hydrologic niche of Carex pellita, a wet meadow species commonly planted in wetland restoration, along with Typha latifolia, a species of cattail ...
