Abstract : The partnering approach to reaching common goals of the Corps' environmental mission is evident in recent and ongoing research activities in north central Texas. The construction of wetlands at Ray Roberts Lake has provided a unique situation for the Corps, various state and federal resource agencies, and an institute of higher learning to put forth a concerted effort and take advantage of new and exciting opportunities. These studies will help expand our understanding of wetland dynamics, the structure and function of constructed wetlands and allow us to fine tune our techniques for wetland construction and restoration. -BKA
