Abstract

Areas that are flooded with water are called wetlands. It could be either permanently or seasonally flooded. Swamps, floodplains, ponds, marshes and lakes are included under inland wetlands. Mangroves, lagoons, salt water marshes, and coral reefs come under coastal wetlands. Human made wetlands also exits. The are fish ponds, rice paddies and saltpans. Wetland systems directly and indirectly support the livelihood of millions of people, providing various tangible and intangible benefits to them. Benefits of wetlands include preventing coastal erosion, checking floods, and reduce the effects of natural disasters like tidal waves and cyclones. They store water for long periods. They also act as spawning grounds for various fish species and provide nesting and foraging opportunities for amphibians, reptiles, birds, insects, and other animals.
