Seasonal pools support biological diversity by providing important habitat. However, the same qualities that make seasonal pools uniquely valuable to wildlife render them especially vulnerable to human disturbance. Their small size, surficial hydrologic isolation, lack of fish populations, and impermanent water make them less likely to attract attention for conservation. Also, they generally are not protected by state or federal regulations. Many seasonal pools may not meet the strict hydrologic, soil, and vegetation requirements to be classified as wetlands at the federal or state level or may fall beneath the minimum size requirements to be protected under wetlands regulatory programs.
