Description

Title:Wetland resources of Illinois : an analysis and atlas
Author(s):Suloway, Liane B.; Hubbell, Marvin E.
Subject(s):Illinois
Maps
Wetlands
Geographic Coverage:Illinois
Abstract:Wetlands once covered more than 8 million acres in Illinois, or 23% of the land (Havera 1985). As a result of human modification of the environment, an estimated 90% of these wetlands have been destroyed (Figure 1). Dramatic declines in the amount of wetlands have been accompanied by changes in their distribution (Figure 2). In Illinois, wetlands have been affected principally by conversion of the land for agricultural purposes and to a lesser extent by development pressure caused by human population growth.
