Abstract

Wetlands are generally defined as lands where water is a key factor determining both soil development and the plant and animal communities living in the soil as well as on its surface (Wilen and Frayer 1990). Consequently, wetlands are transitional lands between terrestrial and aquatic systems where the land is covered by shallow water or the water table is at or near the surface.
