Connecting the Dots: Hydrologic Connectivity Between Wetlands and Other Wetlands and Waterbodies
Wetlands perform numerous ecosystem functions that in turn provide abundant ecosystem services beneficial to humankind. These may include, but are not limited to, flood water storage and release, nutrient transformations, carbon sequestration, and the provision of habitat or refugia. The importance of wetland effects on downgradient waters, such as other wetlands or streams, lies in the degree to which they are hydrologically connected or disconnected across the landscape.
