The report for the Wetland Research Program called 'Wetland Restoration and Creation' is a synthesis of five years of research. The object is to use existing information to guide future decisionmaking. In wetland restoration, the evaluation of data can be used to develop performance criteria and improve design guidelines. Evaluation revolves around 'Performance curves' which involves looking at projects relative to natural wetlands. The report describes the techniques used to arrive at a method to be used to set quantitative performance criteria.
