1 Introduction: Wetland Functioning in Relation to Biodiversity Conservation and Restoration R. Bobbink, D.F. Whigham, B. Beltman, and J.T.A. Verhoeven Section I: Functioning of Plants and Animals. Wetlands are areas where water covers soil all or part of the time. Wetlands are important because they protect and improve water quality, provide fish and wildlife habitats, store floodwaters and maintain surface water flow during dry periods. Learn about wetlands with our Wetlands Factsheet Series. Learn About Wetlands. What is a Wetland?
During the past century approximately fifty percent of the world's wetlands have been destroyed, largely due to human activities. Increased human population has lead to shrinkage of wetland areas, and data show that as they shrink, their important functions decline. Reduced wetland area causes more flooding in Spring, less available water during drought, greater risk of water pollution, and. How wetlands are unique in a flooding situation: Our wetlands start flooding when the Missouri River at Omaha reaches ft. That is assuming the soil isn’t already saturated. When the floods hit, our wetlands were already saturated from moisture received in the fall of
The Wetland Conservation Plan (attached below) was published in to outline goals for the protection, restoration, and enhancement of wetlands. The District’s goal is to achieve no net loss of wetlands within the District, and eventual overall net-gain of wetlands. Major updates to the conservation plan will include. 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.
