Wetland Ecology Principles and Conservation Wetlands are among the most productive and biologically diverse ecosystems on Earth. Their very diversity has confounded ecologists and produced a fragmented area of study where each wetland type has tended to be considered in   Known today as Lake St.

Clair Metropark, the acre tract is a part of the Huron-Clinton Metropark system that serves the region. Over the past several decades, the beach on Lake St.

Clair has been notorious for ongoing closures related to high levels of E. coli bacteria. At times, the shoreline has been overrun with a film of green algae.

Lake St. Clair contains a substantial portion of the remaining Great Lakes coastal wetlands, with extensive wetlands occurring in the vicinity of the St. Clair River Delta. These wetlands are among the most productive areas in the Great Lakes ecosystem. A wetland is a distinct ecosystem that is flooded by water, either permanently or seasonally, where oxygen-free processes prevail.

The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation of aquatic plants, adapted to the unique hydric ds play a number of functions, including water purification, water storage, processing.

It is divided into estuarine and freshwater systems, which may be further subdivided by soil type and plant life into bogs, swamps, and e wetlands have poor drainage, the area is characterized by sluggish or standing water that can create an open-water habitat for wildlife.
