A 4DEE Introduction to wetlands: Basic principles, online mapping, and field identification

This lesson focuses on basic principles and identification of wetlands, which are valuable and productive ecosystems in the landscape. It consists of two files that complement each other. This first is a Powerpoint presentation that provides basic principles about wetlands. The second is a set instructions for a laboratory in which students learn how to locate wetlands using online mapping, and identify wetlands in the field. The second file also contains notes to the Powerpoint presentation. The presentation and lab cover all four dimensions associated with the ESA's 4DEE framework.
