This chapter discusses vegetation of the estuarine wetlands of California's coast, focusing on vegetated wetlands dominated by vascular plants. It begins by discussing important ecosystem functions of wetland, and then describes abiotic and biotic factors affecting vegetation in California's estuarine wetlands, and the distribution of its estuarine wetland systems. The chapter also discusses global climate change effects, rare and endangered wetland plants, and the increased number of invasive plant species, and concludes with efforts focused on the restoration of wetlands in California, considering areas for future research.
