Maximizing the ecological value of coastal wetland restoration: comparisons among restoration techniques

Summary

Texas A&M University at Galveston will expand its existing monitoring program to encompass several other restoration projects, including newly (< 5 yr) created BUDM sites; a subset of these sites were planted with marsh vegetation, and others were left unvegetated. Additional engineered sites will be included as well; all sites will be compared to natural reference sites. Comparisons of the ecological values provided by the engineered and BUDM construction techniques will help to identify the most ecologically effective restoration approaches and enhance future restoration projects along the Texas coast.
