||Emergent wetland areas dominated by woody vegetation that is generally less than 6
meters tall. Characteristic species include true shrubs, young trees, and trees or
shrubs that are small or stunted due to environmental conditions. Scrub-Shrub Wetland
includes the shrub-dominated portions of high salt marshes—as well as stunted or low
mangrove communities. This CMECS Class is equivalent to the Scrub-Shrub Wetland Class
of FGDC-STD-004; however, the palustrine and non-tidal riverine portions of FGDC-STD-004
class are beyond the scope of CMECS.
