Effects of water level on plant characteristics in a restored wetland and referenced natural wetland in Wakiso, Uganda

Wetland restoration success is dependent on the likeness of both structure and function of the restored wetland systems comparable to reference sites. Assessing the success of restoration is reliant on the monitoring and evaluation of the restored system overtime as was done with Nakyesanja, a restored wetland, and Kiryagonja, a referenced natural wetland in Wakiso District, Uganda.

The previous 10 years were characterized by a perennial...
