EPA´s National Wetlands Monitoring Workgroup supports the concept of a Level 1, 2 and 3 approach to wetland monitoring. Level 1, "landscape assessment" relies on coarse, landscape scale inventory information, typically gathered through remote sensing and preferably stored in, or convertible to, a geographic information system (GIS) format.

Biological indicators are species, species assemblages, or communities whose presence, abundance, and condition are indicative of a particular set of environmental conditions. Monitoring early indicators of ecosystem stress may shorten response time by shifting biological integrity of certain systems (Doherty et al.

1 MONITORING AND ASSESSMENT Definition A monitoring and assessment program is defined as the establishment and operation of appropriate devices, methods, systems and procedures necessary to monitor, compile, and analyze data on the condition of wetlands in a state or tribe (adapted from Elements of a State Water Monitoring and Assessment Program, March ).
In this paper, we present a review on concepts, current use and anticipated future directions of biomonitoring approaches and bioindicators used for river by: This book examines the application of fish community characteristics to evaluate the sustainability and biological integrity of freshwaters.

Indicators for monitoring and assessing biological integrity of inland, freshwater wetlands: a review of the technical literature ( ). U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC. EPAR The near-term objectives of the program were to conduct research in order to identify "indicators" of wetland condition, to standardize methods of measurement, and to establish a national network for monitoring wetlands at regional scales and over long periods (decades).
In some places, it is impossible or impractical to measure wetland. Here a proposed classification for biological assessment of Florida inland freshwater wetlands is described.

Assessing ecosystem integrity of restored prairie wetlands from species production In Ecology of Freshwater and Estuarine Wetlands, ed.
A wetland is a distinct ecosystem that is flooded by water, either permanently or seasonally, where oxygen-free processes prevail.
The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation of aquatic plants, adapted to the unique hydric ds play a number of functions, including water purification, water storage.

Methods for Evaluating Wetland Condition. The purpose of these reports is to help States and Tribes develop methods to evaluate (1) the overall ecological condition of wetlands using biological assessments and (2) nutrient enrichment of wetlands, which is one of the primary stressors damaging wetlands in many parts of the country.The suitability of appropriate bioindicators may also be useful for assessing the impacts of human disturbance, application of ecological thresholds to conservation prioritisation (areas with value for biodiversity), monitoring of ecosystem disturbances, and environmental management (quality of the assessment or monitoring) (Heino et al., Towards quantitative limits to maintain the ecological integrity of freshwater wetlands: Interim report and biological indicators to assess the relationships among nutrients, vegetation or algae, soil, and other variables.
