"Other tidal wetlands" is one of the habitat sub-categories within the section dealing with biodiversity of coastal and marine habitats and ecosystems. This forms part of the ENCORA Theme 7.


Fringe wetlands have a continuous or very frequent hydrological connection with the parent water body and are characterized by emergent vegetation. Flood wetlands are, for most of the time, hydrologically separated from the parent water body. Wetlands are more based on detritus than on phytoplankton. A lot of organisms in wetlands live in the substrate, to overcome the problems of oxygen shortage and toxity faced by plant roots.
