Sustaining Multiple Functions for Urban Wetlands

Department of Geosciences - Oregon State University

This website provides summary and contact information for the Urban Wetlands research group at Oregon State University. This project will establish partnerships among public agencies, educators, and interdisciplinary teams of scientists from three regions of the US to summarize the state of our knowledge of wetlands in the urban landscape, and propose directions for future research. A product of this research will be improved understanding of complex relationships among wetland functions. Information provided through this website includes an overview of wetland function in urban environments, information on research personnel, and a slide show illustrating different locations and functions of wetland areas. This resource is part of the Biocomplexity collection.

Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
