Nine created wetlands were paired with nine natural wetlands and compared for species composition, species diversity, wetland function and other site characteristics. Results from comparison of species composition and species diversity indicated that some differences existed between the created and natural sites. However, because differences also existed in the data collected from different teams sampling the same site. A comparison of species composition also found some similarities with respect to the native/introduced and indicator status of the species found at the created and natural sites.
