Although there are many different systems for defining and classifying wetlands, for this chapter we define wetlands generally as areas of land where the water table is at or near the surface for some defined period of time, leading to unique physiochemical and biological processes and conditions characteristic of waterlogged systems. Wetlands exist in both inland and coastal areas, covering approximately 4-6% of the Earth's land surface. They are found on every continent except Antarctica and in every climate from the tropics to the tundra. This chapter examines the possible impacts of climate chnage on non-tidal (primarily inland) freshwater wetlands.
