The goals of the Oregon Wetlands Study are to develop a monitoring method for characterizing and comparing natural and project freshwater, emergent wetlands in different land use settings, and to obtain information that will improve wetland management strategies employing restoration and creation in replacement of permitted wetland losses. Four study objectives addressing these needs for freshwater palustrine wetlands dominated by emergent vegetation and open water are: (1) determine the number of wetlands converted to other landtypes and identify causes of direct loss, (2) evaluate the relationships between surrounding land uses and attainable quality of wetlands, (3) evaluate the replacement potential of wetlands to aid in development of performance criteria for projects, and(4) evaluate how project design and implementation affect replacement potential to facilitate development of design guidelines. Sampling will be focused on populations of wetlands. The study area is located in the metropolitan area of Portland, Oregon. Aspects of vegetation, soils, hydrology, wetland morphology, and extent of buffers will be sampled systematically using a grid of transects.
