Wetlands and meadows are landscape features or biophysical systems that exist at the intersect of geomorphic, hydrologic, climatic, soil and biological processes. They play important roles in moderating flows, improving water quality, providing biodiversity hotspots and sequestering carbon. Wetlands and meadows have also been highly modified by human activities and associated land-use changes, which has reduced their ability to provide these important biophysical services. In more recent years, wetland and meadow restoration projects have become widespread, in large part to restore such services. We invite presentations that explore the biophysical characteristics of these unique systems, their changes over time and impacts of human activity.
