Abstract: Mitigation for wetland impacts associated with port development at the Port of Tampa has evolved significantly over the past two decades. A recent major wetland creation program at the port demonstrates the expanding interest of resource agencies in preserving and enhancing mixed habitat communities, including uplands, and in targeting habitat creation programs toward broader regional management goals. The implications of these new considerations for the concept of mitigation banking is discussed.
