  • Identification of Wetland Plants in Winter

    Wetland plants, also known as hydrophytes or hydrophytic vegetation, have adaptations that enable them to grow and reproduce with their roots in water or saturated soil for at least part of the year. In contrast, plants that cannot survive in saturated conditions are commonly referred to as upland plants. Along with hydric soils and hydrology, the presence of wetland plants is one of the primary ...
