  • Marshes are herbaceous wetlands (dominated by cattails, sedges, grasses, etc.)
  • Swamps are woody wetlands (alder, willow, tamarack etc.)
  • Bogs are dominated by sphagnum mosses
  • Vernal pools are temporary wetlands (little pools) in forest.

Insects, from butterflies to mosquitoes, are probably the most familiar wetland animal. Wetlands support much larger creatures, however.

Moose are herbivores, and up to half of their nutrients come from hydrophytes such as reeds and lilies.
