Wetlands: Kings of Biodiversity

February 2nd is World Wetlands Day, and there’s plenty of good reason to commemorate them. Wetlands are present on every continent except Antarctica! They also have a wide range of biodiversity, depending on the locations they form. A wetland is defined as an area of land that is naturally covered by water, either seasonally or permanently.
Because they exist in so many different places, wetlands have many names: peatlands, bogs, potholes, mires, swamps… All these are types of wetlands, each with a distinct appearance and dynamic. Scientists consider that the most common types of wetlands are marshes, bogs, and swamps.
