Contents Notes The manual presents a state-of-the-art review of wetland functions. Functions covered include groundwater recharge and discharge, flood storage and desynchronization, shoreline anchoring and dissipation of erosive forces, sediment trapping, nutrient retention and removal, food chain support (detrital export), habitat for fish and wildlife, and active and passive recreation. The manual covers all wetland types in the 48 coterminous states, and uses the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service definition and classification system. It examines the validity, interactions, and possible significance thresholds for the functions, as well as documenting their underlying processes. With appropriate qualifying information, wetland types are ranked for each function. Wetland types ideal for each function are identified and illustrated. Potential impacts of highways upon each function are described and, where available, possible thresholds are given. v. 1. Critical review and evaluation concepts / Paul R. Adamus, L.T. Stockwell -- v. 2. FHWA assessment method / Paul R. Adamus, principal investigator.
