An Amendment To: A Test of the Variability and Usefulness of SOLEC Indicators in Wetlands of Lakes Huron and Michigan

Several indicators of ecosystem integrity based on fish,  macroinvertebrates, and plants were recommended for use in Great  Lakes Coastal Wetlands at the 2    SOLEC meeting in Hamilton,  Ontario.  Our objective has been to fully develop these and other  indicators of ecosystem health for Great Lakes coastal wetlands.  This project represents the continuation of a pilot study completed  in 2  3. The objective of this portion of the project was to further  develop and test biotic indicators of wetland ecological health that  could be employed in a monitoring program by federal, state and  local agencies to detect effects of anthropogenic disturbance on the  biotic integrity of Great Lakes coastal wetlands. Specifically, we  have developed and are testing metrics based on macroinvertebrates  and fish for coastal wetlands of all five Great Lakes using data  collected in 2  2 as part of a pilot study funded by the Great Lakes  Coastal Wetlands Consortium initiated by US EPA and facilitated by  the Great Lakes Commission.
