Abstract

Figure 1. One of the eight wetlands on Sharp Knob of the Monongahela National Forest where research plots were established. Ponded depth was measured from July to September. the world. Surface mining for coal, however, has scarred First-Year Survival of Native Wetland nearly 600,000 hectares of this landscape (Zipper et  al. Plants in Created Vernal Pools on an 2011). A large-scale restoration project on reclaimed Appalachian Surface Mine mined land in the Monongahela National Forest (MNF), Anna M. Branduzzi (Department of Forestry and Natural West Virginia was initiated in 2009 to bring back the red Resources, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY), Chris- spruce (Picea rubens) ecosystem that once occupied the topher D. Barton (corresponding author: Department of site. Prior to disturbance from logging in the early 1900s Forestry and Natural Resources, University of Kentucky, and surface mining in the 1980s and 1990s, the red spruce forest covered over 200,000 hectares in WV, but less than 203 Thomas Poe Cooper Building, Lexington, KY, 40546, 20,000 hectares remain today.
