Salt marshes are coastal wetlands often inundated by means of tides. Given their atypical features, salt marshes are colonized by means of salt-tolerant groups of crops (halophytes) tailored to saturated soil stipulations. plants has a massive position not just in marsh ecology, but additionally for the hydrology and geomorphology of those environments. for instance, the suggestions among marsh elevation and plants is key for the survival of salt marshes, fairly while endangered by means of weather swap and sea-level upward thrust. however, the morphology of salt marshes and the procedures that shape this extraordinary panorama have a robust impression at the ecosystem's functionality and structure.
