Wet Meadows

Wet meadows occur at all latitudes in shallow depressions such as old lake beds, or between marshes and upland areas. Precipitation is often their source of water so they may be dry most of the year. Wet prairies are the same but are saturated longer as they may get water from intermittent streams and ground water.
