Riparian Ecosystem Creation and Restoration:
A Literature Summary

Preface


Riparian ecosystem literature summarized in this report was obtained from the Wetland Creation/Restoration (WCR) Data Base, developed in 1988 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Ecology Research Center. The WCR Data Base is a highly indexed, keyworded bibliography of 1,000 articles pertaining to creation or restoration of various wetland types. The data base provides an overview of information available, and a comparison of amount of information published, on various types of wetland creation/restoration projects and techniques useful for developing or evaluating these efforts.

The WCR Data Base was updated in early 1989 with an additional 86 articles. Literature concerning riparian ecosystems from these articles also is included in the literature summary.

The 1988 version of the WCR Data Base is available on floppy disks Information concerning the data base can be obtained from:
