Abstract/Contents:"Innovative research by University of Georgia researchers at the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory demonstrates that seasonal wetlands can be used to increase the biodiversity on golf courses. Their findings and recommendations include: Seasonal wetlands enhance amphibian diversity on golf courses. Increased landscape diversity of wetlands equals higher diversity of amphibians. Education of the golf community on the value of seasonal wetlands is vital. Upland habitats of amphibian species must also be conserved. Some permanent wetlands can be converted suc-cess-fully to seasonal wetlands. Seasonal wetlands should be incorporated into golf courses, either in "out of play" areas or as course hazards."
