Join our team of explorers discovers how water cycles, wetland ecology, biodiversity, invasive species, and related human influences impact our lives. Historic and modern impacts from society have shaped the vital role that wetlands play in the water cycle. That directly affects the survival challenges faced by the species within the wetlands ecological pyramid. But this study of wetlands ecology also ripples far beyond the waters in the marshes. That’s why understanding how to manage our shrinking wetlands is vital to so many things in our everyday lives.
