The Wetland area is typical of wetlands in general, in that there is a transition from
open water, through swamp and marsh zones to dry land. This is called a hydrosere. These four areas, or zones, each differ substantially from
the others. The differences between them are largely due to variations in the amount of
standing water in particular areas.
The regions detailed below have been
separated on the basis of the plant communities occurring there. Each region in the
wetland is described with the aid of pictures and plant species lists. Click on the links
