Abstract:We monitored the response of wetland vegetation and waterbirds to restoration efforts at Emiquon during 2013to evaluate restoration success relative to desired conditions under the relevant KEAs. Our primary efforts included evaluating: 1) abundance, diversity, and behavior of waterfowl and other waterbirds through counts and observations; 2) productivity by waterfowl and other waterbirds through brood counts; 3) plant seed and invertebrate biomass to understand energetic carrying capacity for waterfowl during migration and breeding;and 4) composition and arrangement of wetland vegetation communities through geospatial cover mapping.Herein, we report results of our monitoring efforts and interpret them as a means of evaluating restoration activities at Emiquon with respect to desired conditions under the KEAs.
