For its relatively small geographical size, Great Britain (comprising England, Scotland, and Wales and their associated islands) is uniquely well endowed with estuaries, and these vary greatly in their geomorphologic origins, size, shape, extent of freshwater influence, tidal range, and their variety of coastal and marine habitats. They form a major component of the British natural environment and are of major significance for wetland biodiversity conservation and for the many ecosystem services they provide to people.
