Location

Location

  • Freshwater Wetlands are found all over the world because they are freshwater sources like ponds, marshes, and bogs.


Physical characteristics

Physical Characteristics

  • Salinity- less than 1% in order to support plant life

  • Temperature- ranges year-round from 0 to 22 degrees C., but is always warmest at the top of the water.

  • Depth- generally shallower than lakes, can range from puddles to hectares

  • Water flow- wetlands are standing water so there is no water flow


Base of the food web

Base of the food web

  • Wetlands support a wide variety of plant and animal life.

  • Lilies, cattails, Cyprus, and gum are some plant species that grow there and make up the base of the food web.


Animal life

Animal life

  • Some animals that are supported by the freshwater wetlands ecosystem are amphibians, birds, reptiles, and other furry animals.


Interesting information

Interesting Information

  • Freshwater Wetlands have an extremely high diversity of plant and animal life.

  • They are a transition between aquatic and terrestrial biomes, making them a large sink and exporting materials.
