The Everglades are a part of the Marsh/Wetland Biome


Wetlands, as the name suggests, are wet! They are basically areas of land covered with water either all or only part of the time. Further, wetlands include areas with water of different depths, from water several metres deep to water merely saturating the soil. Even when a wetland appears dry, waterlogged conditions often occur below the surface of the soil. The conditions in a wetland also vary over time, with changes daily, seasonally over a longer time period as wetlands evolve and fill with sediment to eventually become dry land.
