603 Symposium --Restored and Created Wetland Functions Under Extreme Climate Events

Oral Session
S10 Wetland Soils
Wetland restoration and creation efforts have not considered the effects of extreme events, such as drought, flooding, and hurricanes, that may affect their long term functioning. The goal of this symposium is to synthesize the scientific research and expand the discussion on diverse environmental factors that affect the long-term effectiveness of restored wetlands.
