Effect of stream proximity on percent-organic and inorganic carbon in a Southwestern Arizona wetland
Wetland and riparian areas in the American Southwest comprise less than two percent of the land area while containing up to 19% of the endangered, threatened, or candidate species in the region. Despite their potential importance for conservation, little is known about the controls of desert wetland formation and persistence, information that would be vital to management and restoration strategies of this critical habitat. Percent-organic and inorganic carbon found in a transect of sediment cores from the Canelo Hills Ciénega were used to determine aspects of the temporal climate, environmental ...
