Status and Trends of Wetlands in the Coastal Watersheds of the Coterminous United States: 2004 to 2009
Thomas E. Dahl (au); Susan-Marie Stedman (au)
This report tracked wetland loss in the watersheds of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Gulf coasts, as well as the Great Lakes. It concludes that more than 80,000 acres of U.S. coastal wetlands are being lost on average each year, up from 60,000 acres lost per year during the previous study. These wetlands are vital to the survival of diverse fish and wildlife species. They also help sustain the countryńˇ╗s multi-billion-dollar coastal fisheries and outdoor recreation industries, improve water quality and protect coastal communities from the effects of severe storms. Notable wetland losses along the Gulf Coast (257,150 acres) accounted for 71% of the total estimated loss during the study period. The Atlantic Coast lost 111,960 acres and the Pacific Coast 5,220 acres. The watersheds of the Great Lakes region experienced a net gain in wetland area of an estimated 13,610 acres. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
