Deng Wei, Bai Junhong, Hu Jinming, Li Ainong. Constructing a Classification System of Wetlands in Huang-Huai-Hai Plain[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 2010, 25(10): 1023-1030.

There are complicated and various wetland systems in Huang-Huai-Hai Plain, which is resulted from the evolution of three rivers (Yellow River, Huaihe River and Haihe River) in time and space. The natural evolution characteristics gradually disappear and is restricted by the hydrological regime under artificial adjustment in these wetland systems, whose integrity is broken and landscape is fragmented seriously, due to the influence of human activities. In order to protect, manage and rationally utilize wetlands, it is important to construct an appropriate classification system that is coincident with the current pattern and benefcial to the future management. The ecological services of constructed wetlands are highlighted and a new type named as Ditch Wetland is added to the wetland classification system for facilitating the classification of constructed wetlands.
