Abstract:
The state's saltwater marshes serve waterfowl as nesting, resting, and feeding sites. Because of the controversies between conservationists and developers over the use of salt marshes, they are better known then freshwater marshes. Freshwater marshes are created by glaciers, river deltas, beaver dams, and manmade projects and are as important as the saltwater ones. They provide homes to countless birds, mammals, invertebrates, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and many kinds of plants.
