  28. 28. Background Info- Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada- The Oil Sands of Alberta activities affect greatlythe landscape and destroy the wetlands- The Oil Sands of Alberta problematic is to reclaimwetlands lost through bitumen extraction towetlands equivalent to pre-disturbance
  29. 29. Background Information http://apolloalliance.org/digest/?m=200811
  30. 30. Objectives
  31. 31. ObjectivesIs vegetation in created wetland is similar to natural wetlands vegetation ? Personal photos
  32. 32. Methodology
  33. 33. Methodology- To assess vegetation:• To capture all the vegetation and environmental variables variation, each sampled wetland was visually stratified into three zones: 1) open-water, 2) emergent, and 3) wet-meadow• Crossing perpendicularly each of the three zones, three transects were randomly positioned. Along each transect and in each zone, three one-m2 plots randomly placed were assessed
  34. 34. Method Open water zone Emergent zone Wet-meadow zone Transect Quadrat http://sofia.usgs.gov
