A broad definition of wetlands encompasses both freshwater and marine and coastal ecosystems, including all freshwater lakes and rivers, underground aquifers, swamps and marshes, wet grasslands, peatlands, oases, estuaries, deltas, and tidal flats, mangroves and other coastal areas, coral reefs, as well as all man-made sites like fishponds, rice paddies, reservoirs, and saltpans.
