  Wetland Ecology

 

The Forbes Biological Field Station, established in 1894, conducts research on a variety of topics relevant to wetland ecosystems, with a specific focus on the ecology and management of wetlands, waterfowl, and other waterbirds.

The Wetlands Science Program works closely with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to identify, protect, maintain, and restore wetlands in Illinois. This program performs biological surveys and wetland delineations; monitors rehabilitation and restoration of mitigation wetlands; and conducts studies related to the ecology and conservation of wetland ecosystems.
