Wetland Vegetation

This term describes vegetation that exists exclusively in areas that are permanently water logged, but may only be inundated with saline or brackish water periodically or occasionally. This includes areas such as marshes, tidal flats and river estuaries, but excludes oceans. At the Highest Astronomical Tide (HAT) mark, vegetation in this class is never fully submerged and typically only the roots are immersed.
