CZEN members going to American Association of Geographers (AGG) next spring on April 10-14, 2018 in New Orleans should be interested in this special session. We have room for a couple more papers.
Session Id: 11879
Wetlands and meadows are landscape features or biophysical systems that exist at the intersect of geomorphic, hydrologic, climatic, soil and biological processes. They play important roles in moderating flows, improving water quality, providing biodiversity hotspots and sequestering carbon. Wetlands and meadows have also been highly modified by human activities and associated land-use changes, which has reduced their ability to provide these important biophysical services. In more recent years, wetland and meadow restoration projects have become widespread, in large part to restore such services. We invite presentations that explore the biophysical characteristics of these unique systems, their changes over time and impacts of human activity.
