Aerenchyma is a spongy tissue that forms spaces or air channels in the leaves, stems and roots of some plants, which allows exchange of gases between the shoot and the root.
In chemistry, an alkali (from Arabic: al-qaly “ashes of the saltwort”) is a basic, ionic salt of an alkali metal or alkaline earth metal chemical element.
Aquatic plants are plants that have adapted to living in aquatic environments (saltwater or freshwater).
In usage in the United States, a bayou (or, from Cajun French) is a body of water typically found in a flat, low-lying area, and can be either an extremely slow-moving stream or river (often with a poorly defined shoreline), or a marshy lake or wetland.
A biodiversity action plan (BAP) is an internationally recognized program addressing threatened species and habitats and is designed to protect and restore biological systems.
A bog is a wetland that accumulates peat, a deposit of dead plant material—often mosses, and in a majority of cases, sphagnum moss.
Cladium (Fen-sedge, Sawgrass or Twig-sedge) is a genus of large sedges, with a nearly worldwide distribution in tropical and temperate regions.
The Cyperaceae are a family of monocotyledonous graminoid flowering plants known as sedges, which superficially resemble grasses and rushes.
Cyperus papyrus (papyrus,papyrus sedge, paper reed, Indian matting plant, Nile grass) is a species of aquatic flowering plant belonging to the sedge family Cyperaceae.
A dry lake is either a basin or depression that formerly contained a standing surface water body, which disappeared when evaporation processes exceeded recharge.
An ecosystem is a community made up of living organisms and nonliving components such as air, water, and mineral soil.
An estuary is a partially enclosed coastal body of brackish water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea.
A fen is one of the main types of wetland, the others being grassy marshes, forested swamps, and peaty bogs.
Flatwoods, pineywoods, pine savannas and longleaf pine-wiregrass ecosystem are terms that refer to an ecological community in the Southeastern coastal plain of North America.
A freshwater marsh is a marsh that contains fresh water.
The gopher frog (Lithobates capito) is a species of frog in the Ranidae family, endemic to the Southeastern United States.
In ecology, a habitat is the type of natural environment in which a particular species of organism lives.
Herbaceous plants (in botanical use frequently simply herbs) are plants that have no persistent woody stem above ground.
A lagoon is a shallow body of water separated from a larger body of water by barrier islands or reefs.
A landscape is the visible features of an area of land, its landforms and how they integrate with natural or man-made features.
In geography, latitude is a geographic coordinate that specifies the north–south position of a point on the Earth's surface.
A mangrove swamp is a distinct saline woodland or shrubland habitat formed by mangrove trees.
A mire is a wetland type, dominated by living, peat-forming plants.
Paludiculture is wet agriculture and forestry on peatlands.
Peat, also called turf, is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic matter that is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs.
In chemistry, pH is a logarithmic scale used to specify the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution.
A pollutant is a substance or energy introduced into the environment that has undesired effects, or adversely affects the usefulness of a resource.
The Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) is an area of the northern Great Plains and midgrass and tallgrass prairies that contains thousands of shallow wetlands known as potholes.
Salinity is the saltiness or amount of salt dissolved in a body of water (see also soil salinity).
A salt marsh or saltmarsh, also known as a coastal salt marsh or a tidal marsh, is a coastal ecosystem in the upper coastal intertidal zone between land and open saltwater or brackish water that is regularly flooded by the tides.
Seabed gouging by ice is a process that occurs when floating ice features (typically icebergs and sea ice ridges) drift into shallower areas and their keel comes into contact with the seabed.
Sediment is a naturally occurring material that is broken down by processes of weathering and erosion, and is subsequently transported by the action of wind, water, or ice, and/or by the force of gravity acting on the particles.
A spit or sandspit is a deposition bar or beach landform off coasts or lake shores.
A swamp is a wetland that is forested.
A tidal marsh is a type of marsh that is found along rivers, coasts and estuaries of which the flooding characteristics are determined by the tidal movement of the adjacent estuary, sea or ocean.
Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun and the rotation of Earth.
Typha is a genus of about 30 species of monocotyledonous flowering plants in the family Typhaceae.
Urban sprawl or suburban sprawl describes the expansion of human populations away from central urban areas into low-density, monofunctional and usually car-dependent communities, in a process called suburbanization.
A wetland is a land area that is saturated with water, either permanently or seasonally, such that it takes on the characteristics of a distinct ecosystem.
