Wetlands

 "Wetland" is a broad term for any flat, spongy, water-saturated, semi-terrestrial environment.   The land mixes with the water.  And the water mixes with the land.  Wetlands are characterized by distinctive plant and animal species.  Wetlands can be tidal or non-tidal and can hold fresh, salt, or even brackish water.  Some wetlands stay wet all year and others experience prolonged dry periods.  And in fact some portions of a wetlands environment may be dry for many years, only to be completely transformed into a wet, marshy wonderland for frogs, ducks, and long legged herons during a year of exceptionally heavy rain.
