Contents Notes
"This document provides guidance for assessing the condition of any riparian-wetland area other than a lotic (riverine) area. These areas, which are called lentic areas, not only include jurisdictional wetlands...but also nonjurisdictional areas (e.g. deep water, freshwater, saline, marine, and estuarine) that provide enough available water to the root zone to establish and maintain riparian-wetland vegetation"--Page 1. Introduction -- Method development -- Definitions -- Proper functioning condition (PFC) assessment procedure : review existing documents ; analyze the definition of PFC ; assess functionality ; institute the process -- Quantification of checklist items : hydrology ; vegetation ; erosion/deposition -- Summary -- Appendix A : Riparian-wetland lentic checklist -- Appendix B : Potential and capability examples -- Appendix C : Lentic riparian-wetland examples -- Appendix D : PFC--what it is and what it isn't -- Appendix E : Common wetlands -- Appendix F : Problem wetlands -- Literature cited -- Glossary of terms.
