Title Assessing wildlife utilization of seasonally saturated coastal plain forested wetlands (flatwoods)

Project Description Seasonally saturated coastal plain forested wetlands (flatwoods) are among the most threatened wetlands in the coterminous United States. Studies of wetland trends continue to show much loss of these wetlands given their proximity to urban/suburban areas (Tiner and Burke 1995; Tiner et al. 1994).
