Definition of a Wetland
Transcript of Definition of a Wetland
A wetland is a area of land that is moist.
Importance of a wetland
wetland are a critical part of our natural environment. They protect our shores from wave action, reduce the impacts of floods, absorb pollutants and improve water quality. They provide habitat for animals and plants and many contain a wide diversity of life, supporting plants and animals that are found nowhere else.
The dominant vegetation, therefore, distinguishes the two major types of mineral soil wetlands: grasses dominate marshes, while trees dominate swamps. Both marshes and swamps may be freshwater or saltwater.
