The freshwater marshes are non-tidal systems dominated by grasses sedges and other emergent hydrophytes. These wetlands are non-forested and have non-peat soils. They are periodically or continually flooded. The water chemistry in Florida's marshes depends on nearby water sources. They can be either fresh water mineralized marshes or poorly mineralized freshwater marshes.
