African Journal of Aquatic Science, Vol. 35, Issue. 2, p. The importance and ecological significance of estuaries has been long appreciated. In the last few years, there has been increased research activity, resulting in significant advances in understanding of estuarine ecology.

This special thematic volume of Advances in Ecological Research provides an overview of a number of the important areas. An estuary is a partially enclosed coastal body of brackish water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea. Estuaries form a transition zone between river environments and maritime environments known as ies are subject both to marine influences such as tides, waves, and the influx of saline water and to riverine influences.

The Atlantic coast’s estuaries and salt marshes have been historically under-appreciated and misunderstood which has led to their widespread diking, draining and development. Cape Cod National Seashore was created in to protect some of these remaining coastal resources for recreation, conservation and scientific study.

Estuary, partly enclosed coastal body of water in which river water is mixed with a general sense, the estuarine environment is defined by salinity boundaries rather than by geographic boundaries. The term estuary is derived from the Latin words aestus (“the tide”) and aestuo (“boil”), indicating the effect generated when tidal flow and river flow meet.

Turpie () used estuarine water birds.use of some SA estuaries, reference is made to Wood, et alwho provide useful and relevant protocols and guidelines for Eastern Cape estuaries.) Physical characteristics such as depth, width and length play a roll in the selection preference of estuary users.
