Wetlands of the Colorado Plateau receiving water from irrigation can support several societal values. However, relatively little research has been conducted in irrigated wetlands, and their ability to alter water quality in particular remains relatively unknown. For an explicit, integrated, local-scale approach to biodiversity assessment, the report introduces a new procedure for rapidly evaluating wetland and riparian habitat. The procedure estimates the number of species likely to occur regularly in a particular wetland and uses this to assign importance to the wetland. The use can employ the procedure to evaluate a wetland using any subset of species, and to select combinations of wetlands that will maximize avian diversity at local and regional scales.
