Description

In the Midwest, wetlands can be seen as a nuisance to farmers as they can severely increase production costs. Wetlands are however are a major part of ecology for migratory waterfowl and drainage of these wetlands could have dire consequences on the population of waterfowl as well as other wildlife. Originally published in 1971, this report attempts to break down the economic factors of competition for wetlands in Minnesota and surrounding areas in a policy-relevant way and to suggest new policy alternatives. This title will be of interest to students of Environmental Studies.
