Abstract
  • Sound wetland management depends on an accurate comprehensive assessment of functional wetland values. This management should account for the cumulative impacts to regions and landscapes resulting from piecemeal destruction and degradation of wetland resources. A regional or watershed evaluation of wetland values can also make site-specific assessments more efficient. The purpose of this paper is to conduct a regional landscape assessment of Oregon's Willamette Valley wetlands. The information in this report is designed to augment site-specific wetland evaluations with information on 1) wetland loss, 2) habitat for listed wetland species and special wetland communities, 3) development threat, 4) threat to habitat, and 5) wetland restoration potential. I use a modified version of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's synoptic approach methodology to evaluate Willamette Valley wetlands based on these five "synoptic indices."
