The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation of aquatic plants, adapted to the unique hydric ds play a number of functions, including water purification, water storage, processing.

Marshes tend to have permanent open water, which can very in depth and temperature. Unlike swamps, they are not typically forested and have a range of submerged, emergent and semi-aquatic vegetation, usually herbaceous such as grass, sedges, rush and cattail species. Water tolerant shrubs such as sweet gale and hardhack often form part of the perimeter vegetation.
