Description :
This paper discusses in detail the distributions, plant characteristics and environmental conditions of the coastal vegetated wetlands in China. Given a great amount of fine sediment by rivers, China's coastal wetlands are accumulated rapidly. This factor combined with the human's ruthless reclaimation makes the marshes inmature. The vegetated wetlands are classified into 4 types, each having differential features in geomorphological background, deposits and vegetation.
