Abstract:One key objective of water regulation on wet forest land is to increase timber production. Other objectives are to improve wildlife habitat, range land, and flood control. Wetland forests vary widely in site conditions and in their responses to water and soil management. Each kind--swamps, bottomlands, bays, and wet flats--must receive a prescription suited to local peculiarities, because water regulation works best when properly applied to the task for which it is designed. Measures applied, however, must be well enough understood and sufficiently controlled to enable changes in design and shifts in productivity from one resource use to another as the future demands.
