As is obvious by the name, wetlands are water bodies. Of course, a wetland is not just any water body, but that which is transitional between terrestrial and aquatic systems. In simple terms, it is land that is covered with shallow water - either still or flowing, in which the water table is close to the surface. Swamps, marshes, oases in deserts, mud flats, and paddy fields are all examples of wetlands. Stretches of marine water where the depth does not exceed 6 meters at low tide also categorises as wetland. It is an entire ecosystem with its associated plant and animal life.
