This Article asserts that an understanding of wetland valuation requires consideration of many disciplines, including biology, chemistry, social sciences, economics, and state and federal law. The authors explain that wetland valuation is dependent upon the definition of "wetland" in the area under study and the surrounding situation, and conclude that if practitioners understand the major points of wetland appraisal, they will be able to present hearing officers and judges with relatively sophisticated, comprehensive, and accurate information upon which rulings can be based.
