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