Suisun Marsh harbors a diverse, abundant terrestrial vertebrate community and provides refuge for endemic and endangered species in the highly altered San Francisco Estuary, where only a fraction of historic tidal wetland habitat remains. This chapter reviews the historical importance of the marsh for vertebrate inhabitants. We review current stressors, status, and trends for key birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and butterflies, as well as identifying implications for managers working in the marsh ecosystem.

Keywords:   tidal wetland, San Francisco Estuary, endemic, endangered, terrestrial vertebrate, birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies
