Summary

As restoration of tidal freshwater wetlands has progressed in North America and Eurasia, research findings have continued to emerge on the postrestoration success of these ecosystems. The most common approaches used to restore tidal freshwater wetlands involve excavation or placement of dredged sediment to restore tidal hydrology compatible with vegetation establishment and managed realignment or diversion, which involves reconnecting former wetlands to tides by breaching dikes or levees. Postconstruction monitoring of tidal freshwater wetland restoration projects commonly includes not only studies of hydrology, soil, and vegetation but also geomorphology, microbial communities, seed banks, fish, birds, and invertebrates.
