Author(s):Levin, Geoffrey A.; Suloway, Liane; Plocher, Allen E.; Hutto, Franklin R.; Miner, James J.; Phillips, Christopher A.; Agarwal, Jyotsana; Lin, Yiching
Geographic Coverage:Illinois
Abstract:This report documents the status and functions of isolated wetlands in Illinois. A combination of existing Geographic Information System (GIS) data and newly collected field data are used to estimate the number and distribution of isolated wetlands. Limitations in existing data are assessed and approaches that could be used to inventory isolated wetlands in the state are presented. This report also summarizes the functions of isolated wetlands and the potential impacts on wildlife habitat, flood control, and water quality that may result from their loss.
