The report describes the objectives of the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP)-Wetlands. Additionally, it describes a pilot project conducted by the Biological Resources Division-U.S. Geological Survey in the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) of the United States to evaluate the ability of wetland indicators to distinguish between good- and poor-condition areas. The purpose of the pilot study was to select and evaluate indicators that would be robust enough to eventually describe wetland conditions for all of the PPR or for a State via probability survey sampling. A variety of physical, chemical and biological indicators were tested during the summers of 1992 and 1993 on 12 of the original 16 plots selected.
