  • Abstract Isolated wetlands are often degraded by agriculture, increasing sediment accretion and altering plant composition. Two common opposing wetland restoration practices are self-design vs. intensive revegetation. Self-design restores hydrogeomorphology without inoculating wetland taxa into restoration sites. Self-design may not meet restoration targets if dispersal-limited plants do not colonize restoration sites. Alternatively, intensive revegetation (hydrogeomorphic restoration combined… CONTINUE READING
