Wetlands by Alex M Wetlands by Alex M Presentation Transcript

  • Wetlands
    Here is some information about wetlands!
    I am an older student, I am talking to a tourist, my format is a power point, and my topic is: What is a wetland?
  • What is a wetland?
    A wetland is an area that is covered with a shallow layer of water
  • Why are wetlands important?
    Wetlands are important because we get freshwater from them.
    Wetlands are also important because they prevent floods
    Also, wetlands can be used to make things
    Another reason why wetlands are important is that they are many animal and plants homes
    Last, wetlands are important because they clean out the water
  • Three major types of wetlands
    Bogs
    Swamps
    Marshes
  • Bogs
    Bogs get most of their water from precipitation
    Depending on where the bog is located that will be its climate like: Florida is warm and Michigan is cold
    Bogs can form on a lake by having sphagnum moss growing over top of the lake
  • Swamps
    Many swamps have very rich soil and that’s why people used to drain them and use them for agriculture or other development
    There are two kinds of swamps: forest swamps and shrub swamps
    Shrub swamps: water from river and streams
    Forest swamps: water from floods
  • Marshes
    The marshes soil is in saturated conditions and that’s what marshes are adapted to
    Marshes receive water from the ground
    In the soil, there is many nutrients which are needed for the plant growth
    There are two kinds of marshes: tidal and non-tidal
    Non-tidal marshes– brackish or alkaline water and occur along streams
    Tidal marshes- along protected coastlines and salty or brackish water
  • What are most wetlands made from or filled up from?
    Wetlands can be made from grassy areas covered by streams or shallow water
    Wetlands can also be filled up from spring rains
  • Animals
    American crocodiles live in the wetlands
    Manatees live in wetlands
    Frogs live in the wetlands
