Flooded grassland of the Everglades

Flooded grassland

Flooded grasslands are the half grassland, half wetland typified by the Florida Everglades, the marshes of Southern Iraq and the Pantanal of Brazil. They may be permanently or seasonally flooded, which has an obvious effect on what kinds of plant and animal species found here. This type of wetland area is of particular value to bird life, so bird populations – both local species and migrants – are often high in numbers.
