A swamp is a wetland that is forested. The water of a swamp may be fresh waterbrackish water or seawater. Freshwater swamps form along large rivers or lakes where they are critically dependent upon rainwater and seasonal flooding to maintain natural water level fluctuations. The two main types of swamp are "true" or swamp forests and "transitional" or shrub swamps. In the boreal regions of Canada, the word swamp is colloquially used for what is more correctly termed a bogfenor muskeg.
Some of the world's largest swamps are found along major rivers such as the Amazonthe Mississippiand the Congo. Swamps and marshes are specific types of wetlands that form along waterbodies containing rich, hydric soils. Swamps are wetlands consisting of saturated soils or standing water and are dominated by water tolerant woody vegetation such as shrubs, Cheater - 2562 - Fever (File, Album), and trees.
Swamps are characterized by their saturated soils and slow moving waters. As water flows through the swamp, nutrients, sediment and pollutants are Swamp Diving - Ralax - Earthly Swamp filtered out.
Chemicals like phosphorus and nitrogen that end up in our waterways get absorbed and used by the aquatic plants within the swamp, purifying the water. Any remaining or excess chemicals present will accumulate at the bottom of the swamp, being removed from the water and buried within the sediment.
Swamps and other wetlands have traditionally held a very low property value compared to fields, prairiesor woodlands. They have a reputation for being unproductive land that cannot easily be utilized for human activities, other than perhaps hunting and trapping. Farmers, for example, typically drained swamps next to their fields so as to gain more land usable for planting crops. In reality, swamps play an important ecological role in our environment and provide a variety of resources that we depend on.
Swamps and other wetlands are used as a tool in flood management. In circumstances of flooding, swamps absorb and use the excess water within the wetland, preventing it from traveling and protecting surrounding areas from flooding. Swamps are critically important to providing fresh water and oxygen to all life, and they are often breeding grounds for a wide variety of species.
Floodplain swamps are extremely important Swamp Diving - Ralax - Earthly Swamp fish production. Wetlands are removed and replaced with land that is then used for things like agriculture, real estate, and recreational uses.
Many swamps have also undergone intensive logging and farming, requiring the construction of drainage ditches and canals. These ditches and canals contributed to drainage and, along the coast, allowed salt water to intrude, converting swamps to marsh or even to open water. Louisiana provides a classic example of wetland loss from these combined factors. In many parts of the world authorities protect swamps. In parts of Europe and North America, swamp restoration projects are becoming widespread.
Conservationists work to preserve swamps such as those in northwest Indiana in the United States Midwest that were preserved as part of the Indiana Dunes. Swamps can be found on all continents except Antarctica. The largest swamp in the world is the Amazon River floodplain, which is particularly significant for its large number of fish and tree species.
The Sudd and the Okavango Delta    are Africa's best known marshland areas. The Bangweulu Floodplains make up Africa's largest swamp. The Tigris-Euphrates river system  is a large swamp and river system in southern Iraqtraditionally inhabited in part by the Marsh Arabs.
Indonesia has the largest area of tropical peatland. This is one of the largest swamps in the world, covering an area larger than Switzerland. It is an important example of southern cypress swamp  but it has been greatly altered by logging, drainage and levee construction. The Subfocus* - Frozen Solid / X-Ray is located in extreme southeastern Georgia and extends slightly into northeastern Florida.
Point Lookout State Park on the southern tip of Maryland contains a large amount of swamps and marshes. Both are National Wildlife Refuges. Another swamp area, Reelfoot Lake of extreme western Tennessee and Kentuckywas created by the —12 New Madrid earthquakes. Caddo Lakethe Great Dismal and Reelfoot are swamps that are centered at large lakes. Swamps are often called bayous in the southeastern United Statesespecially in the Gulf An American Trilogy - Elvis* - Live In Las Vegas region.
The world's largest wetlands include significant areas of swamp, such as in the Amazon and Congo River basins. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
