Generiši izgovor

ETYM Irish and Gael. bog soft, tender, moist: cf. Irish bogach bog, moor, marsh, Gael. bogan quagmire.
Wet spongy ground of decomposing vegetation; has poorer drainage than a swamp; soil is unfit for cultivation but can be cut and dried and used for fuel; SYN. peat bog.
Type of wetland where decomposition is slowed down and dead plant matter accumulates as peat. Bogs develop under conditions of low temperature, high acidity, low nutrient supply, stagnant water, and oxygen deficiency. Typical bog plants are sphagnum moss, rushes, and cotton grass; insectivorous plants such as sundews and bladderworts are common in bogs (insect prey make up for the lack of nutrients).

Low-lying wet land with grassy vegetation; usually is a transition zone between land and water; SYN. marshland, fen.
Low-lying wetland. Freshwater marshes are common wherever groundwater, surface springs, streams, or run-off cause frequent flooding or more or less permanent shallow water. A marsh is alkaline whereas a bog is acid. Marshes develop on inorganic silt or clay soils. Rushes are typical marsh plants. Large marshes dominated by papyrus, cattail, and reeds, with standing water throughout the year, are commonly called swamps. Near the sea, salt marshes may form.

A situation fraught with difficulties and imponderables.
Low land that is seasonally flooded; has more woody plants than a marsh and better drainage than a bog.
Region of low-lying land that is permanently saturated with water and usually overgrown with vegetation; for example, the everglades of Florida, US. A swamp often occurs where a lake has filled up with sediment and plant material. The flat surface so formed means that runoff is slow, and the water table is always close to the surface. The high humus content of swamp soil means that good agricultural soil can be obtained by draining.

wetland [ imenica ]
Generiši izgovor

A low area where the land is saturated with water.
Permanently wet land area or habitat. Wetlands include areas of marsh, fen, bog, flood plain, and shallow coastal areas. Wetlands are extremely fertile. They provide warm, sheltered waters for fisheries, lush vegetation for grazing livestock, and an abundance of wildlife. Estuaries and seaweed beds are more than times as productive as the open ocean.
The term is often more specifically applied to a naturally flooding area that is managed for agriculture or wildlife. A water meadow, where a river is expected to flood grazing land at least once a year thereby replenishing the soil, is a traditional example.
In the US wetlands have been destroyed at a rate of about 6hectares a day for the last century, though 244,0hectares were restored 1990–199NS 940702
