Wetlands are often described as eco tones-transitional habitats situated between dry land and a water body.
“Submerged or water saturated lands, both natural and man-made, permanent or temporary with water that is static or flowing, fresh, brackish or salt, including areas of marine water the depth of which at low tide does not exceed 6m. “
