The Science of Restoring the EvergladesBooklet
From the nation’s wetlands to the Missouri River to restoring the Everglades, no important water-related controversy has escaped the attention of the National Academies. Committees organized by the Water Science and Technology Board or the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology have produced many reports on these and other topics. Committee members are selected for the individual expertise, and the committee is balanced to represent various points of view. At a time when water resources management is one of the nation’s most complex endeavors, these reports provide thoughtful analysis and helpful direction to policymakers and stakeholders. This brochure highlights some of the most important scientific themes that have emerged from the reports to date on the restoration of the Everglades. With support from sponsors, the National Academies will likely continue in its science advisory role to the agencies working on restoration plans.
