Electronic download only.  Development is seriously affecting the freshwater wetland resources in the Greater Houston Metro Area, and continued loss at the rates documented will very likely have grave implications for the long-term health of the Galveston Bay System. This publication explains the results of research on where, why, and how many acres of wetlands have been destroyed in the Houston area since 1992 and what residents, resource managers, and policy makers can do to protect what remains. 49 pages, 24 figures, 13 tables, and an atlas detailing wetlands losses. By John S. Jacob, Kirana Pandian, Ricardo Lopez, and Heather Biggs
