Wet Prairie

Wet prairie is an wetland typically dominated by graminoid species such as prairie cordgrass (Spartina pectinata), bluejoint (Calamagrostis canadensis), and sedges (Carex spp.).  The species diversity of wet prairies is lower than that of mesic prairies.  Wet prairies occur in deep swales and the substrate ranges from very deep black mineral soils (which are high in organic matter) to muck.
