Core researchers for the center are the director, faculty, visiting scholars and graduate students. The director is advised by both an internal faculty committee and an outside Wetland Council consisting of nationally prominent leaders from industry, government, and conservation groups. Graduate students in the center are enrolled in one of several degree programs on campus -- Ph.D., M.S., Master of Environmental Management, or Master of Forestry -- and can specialize in such study areas as wetland restoration and reclamation, wetland soils, biogeochemistry of wetland ecosystems, wetland delineation, analysis of wetland functions, phosphorus cycling in wetlands, hydrologic processes in wetlands, and paleoecology of wetlands. As part of a professional school within a private university, the Duke Wetland Center works independently on wetland issues without the political pressures often brought to bear upon public institutions.
