Approaches for tidal-marsh restoration in San Francisco Bay and Delta continue to evolve, with a focus on promoting the natural development of restored marshes. Allowing for natural marsh development enhances the physical and biological heterogeneity of restored marshes, including tidal-channel formation. The scope of restoration efforts within the bay and delta has increased substantially over the last few decades, with large-scale, regional efforts replacing smaller-scale, mitigation-based restoration. There has also been a growing focus on the restoration of brackish and freshwater tidal marshes, rather than just salt-marsh restoration. Finally, climate change has become a major consideration for current and future bay and delta restoration; major restoration concerns for climate change include evaluating its impact on marsh migration and connectivity, carbon sequestration, and invasive species.

Keywords:   adaptive management, carbon sequestration, climate change, invasive species, marsh migration, mitigation, regional restoration planning, spatial heterogeneity
