Uses of Wetlands by Tyler Uses of Wetlands by Tyler Presentation Transcript

  • The Uses For The Wetlands There are many uses for the wetlands but the three most important three are. They don’t flood, they are homes of many animals, and they are used for water collection.
  • My Role
    • My role is the wetland animal
  • My Audience
    • My audience is the EPA board
  • My Format
    • My format is a power point
  • My Topic
    • My topic is the uses of wetlands
  • They Don’t Flood
    • About 75 percent of Uganda’s wetlands are seasonal,
    • meaning they are not flooded for part of the year. In many
    • locations, this dry period extends over most of the year.
  • They Are Homes Of Many Animals
    • Wetlands are home to a diverse culture of plants and animals. For example, nearly fifty percent of amphibians breed in one type of wetland (vernal pools). Without the ecological support of wetlands, we would see the extinction of many unique species that can only be supported in a wetlands environment. In fact, approximately 43 percent of all the endangered bird species live in the wetlands.
  • Water Collection
    • Abstract   A sampler for collection of interstitial water from wetland sediments is described. It differs from other sampling devices because it does not have to be filled with solution to facilitate diffusion, it does not have to be removed from the wetland to collect samples, and it can be used to draw repeated samples over time from identical locations.
