This booklet provides the general public with the most up-to-date information on the status and recent trends in wetlands of five states in the Mid-Atlantic region : Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia . Pertinent background information on wetland types and values is also presented along with some recommendations to improve the future for wetlands . This booklet is based on a recently completed U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-U.S . Environmental Protection Agency study of wetland changes in this five-state region . This study was designed to answer questions such as : (1) How much wetland exists in the Region., (2) Where are wetlands most Abundant., (3) What wetland types are most common. (4) How have wetlands changed between the mid-1950's and late 1970's., (5) What wetlands are most Threatened., and (6) What are the major causes of wetland changes. We hope that this booklet will provide you with the answers to these questions, give you a better understanding of wetlands, and spark an interest in the conservation of these valuable natural resources.
