Wetlands Sector Report

Provides a summary of the current status of wetlands in the United States as well as a discussion of the basic categories of wetland benefits. These benefits are characterized as fish and wildlife values, environmental quality values, and socioeconomic values. The report summarizes the values calculated by a number of studies, but emphasizes their fragmentary nature and the diversity of wetlands, which makes such values difficult to determine.
