Methods of wetland delineation require presence of three parameters: hydric soils, wetland hydrology, and hydrophytic vegetation. Currently accepted methods to assess these parameters often have inconsistent agreement among the parameters in bottomland hardwood forested wetlands. This study characterized soil morphology, hydrology, and vegetative composition in a bottomland hardwood forest in east Texas, USA. Alternate methods for assessment of the three parameters were examined with the aim of… CONTINUE READING
