The marsh zone grades into the 'dry'
land area in the northern region of the wetland. While it can be termed dry land in
comparison to the rest of the wetland, it may still flood occasionally in very wet periods
and it supports plants which prefer moist conditions. This area represents the final stage
in the succession from open water to dry land.
Plant zonation in wetlands
The region supports tall trees (15 metres in height)
such as Scots Pine, Alder, Willow, Oak, Holly and Silver Birch. There is also a region
where Rhododendron dominates, shading out most other vegetation. The Rhododendron merges
into the marsh community in the wetland.
