The paper describes the method used for selecting natural wetlands to compare with created wetlands. The results of the selection process and the advantages and disadvantages of the method are discussed. The random site selection method required extensive field work and may have yielded fewer sites with potential for long term comparison than a more subjective approach. However, valuable information was derived on trends in wetland loss and public attitudes toward government research. Most important, the method provided a statistically defensible means of obtaining a set of sites. The data from the pilot study will estimate the variability of natural wetlands within the ecoregion. Analysis of the variability between ecoregions will be possible with similar studies in other areas of the country. The studies will give EPA a framework for setting standards for wetland creation and restoration.
