Research Project: CEAP-WETLANDS MID-ATLANTIC REGIONAL STUDY (2010/2011)

Location: Pasture Systems & Watershed Management Research

Project Number: 1902-13000-012-09
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2009
End Date: Sep 30, 2011

Objective:
Provide science-based data, results and information to routinely inform conservation decisions affecting wetland ecosystems and the services they provide. Develop a broad collaborative foundation that facilitates the production and delivery of scientific data, results and information.

Approach:
Conduct collaborative regional investigations to: - quantify wetland ecosystem services across an alteration gradient in agricultural landscapes; - interpret effects of conservation practices and programs, and the effectiveness (i.e., the type, location, land treatment, design and/or management) of conservation practices on ecosystem services; and - identify multiple-scale factors that influence the capacity for a wetland to provide an ecosystem service within a range of estimates.
