Regional Standards to Identify and Evaluate Tidal Wetland Restoration in the Gulf of Maine --
 A GPAC Workshop Report

In June of 1999, more than 50 scientists and resource managers from the United States and Canada came together at the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve in Wells, Maine, to discuss their common interest in the science and practice of tidal wetland restoration. Over the course of two days, workshop participants achieved consensus on methods for identifying potential salt marsh restoration and reference sites and for evaluating salt marsh restoration success. This report summarizes the premises, processes, and outcomes of the workshop, resulting in a set of standard inventory and monitoring protocols for tidal wetland restoration in the Gulf of Maine.
