Description

Swamps are wetland areas where water totally or partially submerges the vegetation, for part or most of the year. Swamp waters flow very slowly, and there are often reed beds or sedges growing at their margins. Any raised areas within a swamp, are likely to be drier and may therefore have trees growing on them. Swamps include the fens, the Florida Everglades and the Okavango Delta.
