In selecting peer reviewers the Service must ensure that the reviewers possess the necessary expertise
and independence from the agency and that they represent the primary disciplines needed to conduct
an authoritative, thorough and unbiased review. Review individuals were selected to represent a
diversity of scientific perspectives relevant to wetlands ecology and management. They include
representatives from other federal and state resource agencies as they possess unique or indispensable
wetlands expertise. Individuals from academia were selected based on their overall experience with a
variety of wetland ecosystems and their ability to provide evaluation of biological plausibility.
The Service will solicit letter reviews from experts as this is more expeditious and practicable than
convening a panel of experts or contracting for peer review. Individual letter reviews are also more
