Part of the Encyclopedia of Earth Sciences Series book series (EESS)

A marsh is a well‐buffered wetland, with relatively strong water‐flow and large seasonal fluctuations in water level. Trees are lacking, and eutrophic conditions allow a high production of vascular plants, while prohibiting a well‐developed bryophyte layer. A salt marsh is one affected by sea-water.
