Wetlands of the United States are defined by the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the United States Environmental Protection Agency as "those areas that are inundated or saturated by surface or ground water at a frequency and duration sufficient to support, and that under normal circumstances do support, a prevalence of vegetations typically adapted for life in saturated soils.

The Emergency Wetlands Resources Act of requires the Fish and Wildlife Service to conduct status and trend studies of the nation's wetlands and to report the results to Congress each decade.
The overall goal is to have no more net loss of wetlands.

In this paper we present an overview of the non-alluvial wetlands in the southern Atlantic and eastern Gulf coastal plain and focus on two of the most threatened non-alluvial wetland communities in the region, pond cypress savannas and karst by: Tidal wetlands are a dominant landscape feature of the coastal zone in the southeastern United States.
These wetlands are largely colonized by salt-tolerant plants forming salt and brackish marshes or mangrove swamps, or by other water-tolerant species in tidally influenced freshwater areas. Anyone driving to southern beaches is likely to have crossed coastal wetlands on the.
search studies on watersheds in the Coastal Plain of the southeastern United States. The Coastal Plain is a region where extensive hydrologic data bases have generally not been available because of difficulties associated with the accurate measurement of streamflow in the low-gradient channel systems of theFile Size: 5MB.
Large-scale conversion of wetlands to farmlands started to have a real effect on the distribution and abundance of wetlands in the United States.
Areas where notable wetland loss occurred between and are shown in figure 6. Coastal wetlands, including tidal marshes and forests, provide a number of key ecosystem services, including habitat for recreationally and.
It also presents existing regional and national information on wetland trends. The report is divided into six chapters: (1) Introduction, (2) What is a Wetland?, (3) Major Wetland Types of the United States, (4) Why are Wetlands Important?, (5) Current Status and Trends of U.S.
Wetlands, and (6) The Future of America's Wetlands. Goals / Objectives The overall objective of the proposed study is to quantitatively describe the structure and composition of the forested wetland communities within the southeastern US coastal region and determine how wetland functions are influenced by disturbance and changes in hydrology.
Specific objectives include: 1. understand long-term ecological processes of freshwater forested. subsiding delta (Boesch et al., ). Confinement of the flood plains has resulted in higher peak river flows, heightening flood peaks.
The protection and restoration of this important ecosystem will require ''reengineering" of freshwater and sediment flows in the delta. At the same time, increases in the flux of nutrients, particularly. The Science Issue and Relevance: Tidal freshwater forested wetlands (TFFWs) occur in upper intertidal reaches of many estuaries throughout the world, and represent a transition between coastal marshes and fluvial bottomland hardwood wetlands.
Because of this landscape position, TFFWs are susceptible to sea-level rise and are constantly transitioning to different wetland community types over.

Buzzards Bay National Estuary Program Established in as the Buzzards Bay Project, our mission is to protect and restore water quality and living resources in Buzzards Bay and its surrounding watershed through the implementation of the Buzzards Bay Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan.
A wetland is a distinct ecosystem that is flooded by water, either permanently or seasonally, where oxygen-free processes prevail. The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation of aquatic plants, adapted to the unique hydric ds play a number of functions, including water purification, water storage, processing.

Also, the southeast states are considered one watershed although several rivers flow into the Gulf and Atlantic separately.) Have students use this map to help.Lakeside wetlands (lentic) are insignificant on the coastal plain watersheds but occupy from 4% to 9% of the wetland area in watersheds in the glaciated Northeast.
The Nanticoke and Coastal Bays watersheds had 9% and 5% of their freshwater wetland area located along estuaries, : Ralph W. Tiner. This research project will examine the effect of hydrologic alterations on a variety of functions associated with forested wetlands in the southeast United States.
