A poster with information about the plant life, climate and annual rainfall that characterise a wetland environment.
What is a wetland?
Plant life: aquatic plants (plants that can live under water), mangroves, seaweed, algae and water lilies.
Climate: Temperatures vary greatly depending on the location of the wetland. There are some wetlands near the equator that can get as hot as 50°C and some wetlands in Siberia that can get as cold as -50°C.
Annual rainfall: 180 to 10,000 mm.
