Paynes Prairie: Biography of a wetland.
Controversy surrounding the fate of wetlands across the nation has generally focused on issues such as property rights, wetland boundaries and benefits wetland ecosystems provide humankind. Connections between wetland systems are frequently lost in the debate. Also faded from view is the historical perspective of wetlands. Yet an understanding of the historical significance of a given wetland ecosystem can sharpen the focus on the major issues and reduce misunderstandings commonly associated with wetlands preservation efforts.
