The Wetlands Field Guide is intended to familiarize the reader with the flora and fauna, with the genetic adaptations they have made to survive the adverse, abiotic conditions, including wind, soil conditions, temperature, and salt spray. The procedure employed for the illustrations of the wetlands is called a biological transect. Starting from the waters edge, a twenty-five-meter line is employed. A one-meter square frame is placed at the twenty-five-meter mark. The most common floras within the one square meter are photographed for further identification. This process is continued every twenty-five meters to high ground, which is commonly inhabited by the common reed, pine, cedar, and oak species in the northeast hemisphere. The vegetational distribution of plants may vary or overlap in each zone. The illustrations included are the ones that most frequently occupy that zone. Also included with the flora are the descriptions of common invertebrates found in the wetter zones. The procedure of the transect may be reversed, which means they will start from high ground and work their way down to the salt marsh community. It is hoped that this publication will be useful to teachers, laymen, and students so that they may be aware of the genetic adaptations that both flora and fauna have made to survive the adverse conditions of the marine environment.

The keys are easy to use and the plant and habitat descriptions are comprehensive. I also found each species distribution map right with the plant was also very helpful. I particularly liked the Cyperaceae and Poaceae sections that can be troublesome for even seasoned botanists. Steve Chadde excelled with this field guide!"

Understand the current concept of wetland and methods for identifying, describing, classifying, and delineating wetlands in the United States with Wetland Indicators - capturing the current state of science's role in wetland recognition and mapping. Environmental scientists and others involved with wetland regulations can strengthen their knowledge about wetlands, and the use of various indicators, to support their decisions on difficult wetland determinations. Professor Tiner primarily focuses on plants, soils, and other signs of wetland hydrology in the soil, or on the surface of wetlands in his discussion of Wetland Indicators. Practicing - and aspiring - wetland delineators alike will appreciate Wetland Indicators' critical insight into the development and significance of hydrophytic vegetation, hydric soils, and other factors. Features Shows 55 color plates, documenting wetland indicators throughout the nation - with more than 34 soil plates and aerial photos Illustrates other wetland properties with more than 50 figures Provides over 60 tables, including extensive tables of U.S. wetland plant communities and examples for determining hydrophytic vegetation Contents Wetland Definitions Wetland Concepts for Identification and Delineation Plant Indicators of Wetlands and Their Characteristics Vegetation Sampling and Analysis for Wetlands Soil Indicators of Wetlands Wetland Identification and Boundary Delineation Methods Problem Wetlands and Field Situations for Delineation Wetland Classification Wetlands of the United States: An Introduction, With Emphasis on Their Plant Communities Wetland Mapping and Photointerpretation
