Abstract : Louisiana's coastal marshes were, still are and will continue to be a place to fish, hunt ducks, and harvest furs and oysters. Early on, those attributes defined the life styles of some (Ensminger, 1989; Davis 1993b) and are the foundation of the culture for others (Davis 1993b). Those same marshes are where a network of man-made waterways was created during the first half of this century to facilitate navigation-related economic enterprises and where oil and gas exploration and extraction efforts have been on-going for nearly a century. Projects to protect the economic infrastructure of south Louisiana from flooding initiated during the earlier part of this century are also a prominent factor that has, is and will continue to shape the future of Louisiana's coastal marshes.
