salt marsh

A community of organisms dominated by plants that are tolerant of wet, saline soils, generally found in low-lying coastal habitats which are periodically wet and unusually saline to hypersaline. The term salt marsh summarizes the saline conditions of the habitat as well as the emergent vegetation which dominates it. Plants which grow in salt marshes are thus tolerant of two conditions: saline and wet.
