How are swamps effected by global warming?

Its a pretty delicate ecosystem isn’t it?

    Warmer ocean temperatures can effect swamp lands which are used a barrier to protect many costal areas against the direct force of hurricanes or cyclones. For a swamp to thrive it requires fresh water, as the ocean levels rise this means that the salt water from the ocean reacts with the swamp causing it to slowly disappear. Once this swamp land has been reduced it means that inland areas will feel more of the direct effects of these storms leading to more flooding and destruction of these areas. The different parts of our earth work in concert with one another so one part affected eventually leads to another part.
