Landscape change in Suisun Marsh is best understood as a continuum, allowing us to compare and contrast shifting influences on ecological processes. The historical record reveals differential rates and types of ecological changes in subregions of this wetland before reclamation activities such as diking and water diversion began. Underlying geomorphic processes that are obscured by contemporary management practices can inform future strategies, and a clearer picture of the biotic community can help set appropriate targets for diversity, abundance, and functionality.

Keywords:   historical ecology, landscape change, geomorphology, biotic community, diversity, abundance, functionality
