Article Topic(s): Restoration
Research Setting(s): Wetland
Species Referenced: Scirpus cyperinus (Woolgrass),
AbstractExamines above and below ground biomass in created wetlands to assess wetland functional development. Scirpus cyperinus exhibited the highest peak of above ground biomass. Results indicate that structural and functional development of the wetlands has been halted at an immature state as a result of soil and hydrologic factors.
