When the proper hydrologic regime is reached at the created site, the seed bank from the donor soil is then present to take advantage of the uncolonized site.
Over wetlands have been created in northeast Wyoming, USA from bentonite mining and most of them have not developed submersed and emergent plant communities due to isolation from plant sources. Our goal was to evaluate the effectiveness of using salvaged-wetland soil as a tool for improving plant growth at created wetlands.
Six wetlands were treated as reference wetlands, with no introductions of seeds or propagules. Treatment wetlands were evaluated for plant growth during the fall of and , whereas the greenhouse samples were grown for two growing seasons then harvested. Our results show that using salvaged wetland soil increases: 1 the number of plant species present at a wetland over time, 2 the total vegetation coverage in a treated wetland over time, and 3 the total plant biomass in a treated wetland.
The species pool available in the salvaged wetland soil was limited to 10 obligate wetland species, but several of them are considered valuable to waterfowl and other wildlife.

Furthermore, salvaged-wetland soil could be useful for ameliorating poor substrate conditions i. One concern with this technique is the introduction of invasive or exotic species that could form monocultures of undesirable plants e. We believe incorporating salvaged-wetland soil during basin construction could be used to increase the value and productivity of created wetlands in this region. Unable to display preview.
