Abstract: Our objectives for this project are to evaluate restoration trajectories of microbial communities and their function in restored wetlands throughout Illinois. We are further interested in identifying landscape, design, or management factors linked with successful delivery of microbial functions, and to improve our understanding of how wetland restoration priorities influence delivery of microbial ecosystem services.
