Objective:
This study seeks to determine change over time of marshland bogs near Bolivar Sur, as this type of natural environment is sorely under appreciated for the biodiversity habitat that it provides and is threatened by development. In fact, this research aims to develop new classification tools for use in supporting local conservation.
