Abstract

Overall, our data indicate that Emiquon Preserve may be reaching a steady-state where productivity may continue to decline if system perturbations are withheld. We suggest increasing spatial coverage of hemi-marsh and consideration of drawdowns as a management tool. We also advocate timing of drawdowns and reflooding to complement management strategies of other wetland complexes in the region (e.g., Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge) and the need for newly-flooded waterfowl habitats in early spring.
