Wetland Restoration Bibliography

Cover Photo of Wetland

Welcome to the Bibliography on Wetland Restoration, a cooperative project of the Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center and the Midcontinent Ecological Science Center (now known as Fort Collins Science Center).

The various values of wetlands are increasingly being recognized. Not only do wetlands support a wide variety of birds and other wildlife, they perform valuable hydrological functions, contribute to groundwater recharge, improve water quality, and offer recreational and economic benefits. After many years of subsidized programs to drain wetlands, a reverse process is now in effect. Many federal agencies, Native American tribes, states, nongovernmental organizations, and private individuals are actively restoring wetlands. This bibliography is intended to provide scientists, managers, educational institutions (or students), and policy-makers with ready access to current information on wetland restoration.

An annotated bibliography originally developed and provided by the Midcontinent Ecological Science Center was the foundation for this bibliography. Northern Prairie Wildlife Center developed a program for viewing and searching the bibliography on the Web. Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center is also adding recent literature citations to the data base. We encourage you to use the bibliography and, if you are aware of pertinent literature that is not included, to offer us those citations.
