Abstract: The number of breeding marsh birds per restored wetland ranged from 1-18 species during 1989 and 1990 in northern Iowa. There was a positive significant relationship between species richness and wetland area. Birds rapidly colonized restored wetlands, usually within the first year of restoration. How long a wetland has been drained does not affect bird species richness but did affect the development of marsh vegetation. Relative coverage of emergents, floating plants, open water, and bare ground affected bird … Show more

“…Natural recovery of invertebrates results from remnant invertebrate egg banks, refugial populations, or by dispersal of propagules or adults into wetlands from surrounding sources. Insects with aerial dispersal capabilities have been shown to recolonize restored wetlands rapidly (LaGrange and Dinsmore 1989, Sewell 1989, Delphey 1991, Hemesath 1991, VanRees-Siewert 1993. In contrast, some studies have indicated that less mobile and passively dispersed invertebrates were poorly represented in restored wetlands (Delphey 1991, VanRees-Siewert 1993, Brown et al 1997).…”

“…Floating perennials and woody plants also were ignored because of their small contribution to or sporadic presence in prairie wetlands. (Delphey, 1991;Hemesath, 1991;Sewell, 1990). Sewell (1989) Likewise, Zenner and others (1990) observed average breeding pairs/hectare of water to be 2.7 for mallard, 1.4 for blue-winged teal, and 0.5 for all other ducks and geese.…”

“…When feasible, restore wetlands within wetland complexes or those that are surrounded by a high density of wetlands in the landscape (VanRees-Siewert 1993, VanRees-Siewert and Dinsmore 1996, Dault 2001, Fairbairn and Dinsmore 2001a. Restoring groups of wetlands of various types and sizes will provide habitat regardless of water conditions in a given year (Hemesath 1991, Hemesath and Dinsmore 1993, Dault 2001, Fairbairn and Dinsmore 2001a In general, avian mortality due to power line collisions can be reduced by placing utility lines several kilometers away from wetlands, waterfowl concentration areas, flyways, roosting areas, feeding areas, low passes, breeding areas, and especially paths between feeding and roosting or nesting areas (Thompson 1978, Malcolm 1982. Mortality due to fences can be reduced by reviewing fence construction plans and modifying plans for proposed management projects (i.e., replacing or removing dangerous fences) (Allen and Ramirez 1990).…”
