A marsh is a type of wetland. Other types of wetlands include swamps, bogs, fens, forested wetlands, and others. A marsh is almost always inundated, or full of water. There is usually some open water present. Vegetation such as grasses, reeds, and forbs dominate the marsh landscape. This contrasts with swamps that are generally deeper and have more trees.
