Upland ecological systems do not display characteristics of wetlands: (1) there is little to no flooding or soil saturation; (2) the vegetation has few plants which are adapted to grow in water or in a soil or substrate that is occasionally oxygen deficient due to saturation (few, if any, hydrophytes); and (3) the soils are not saturated long enough during the growing season to produce oxygen-deficient conditions in the upper part of the soil, which commonly includes the major part of the root zone of plants (non-hydric soils).
Terrestrial areas that do not exhibit wetland characteristics.
As used herein, any area that does not qualify as a wetland because the associated hydrologic regime is not sufficiently wet to elicit development of vegetation, soils, and/or hydrologic characteristics associated with wetlands. Such areas occurring within floodplains are more appropriately termed nonwetlands.
