Wetland soils are known for their high organic matter. Soil characteristics become one of the major determinants of the types and abundance of plant species that grow there. Reliable information on the status and extent of wetland resources in particular areas can be used to determine the nature of soil development and the types of plant and animal communities living in the soil and on its surface.
