        Detached Wetlands

        This video depicts a detached wetland, a small pool that forms beside a shallow meandering stream when it overflows its banks. Such wetlands contribute to the vibrancy of the ecosystem by providing safe breeding grounds for the animals that live in and beside streams. Detached wetlands seldom form beside a channelized stream because the stream's swiftly running water digs deeply into the bedrock creating steep banks that water rarely overflows.
