Paper Title:
A Review of Impacts of Oil Pollution on Coastal Wetland Ecosystem
  Abstract

The wetland, known as the kidney of the earth, together with the forest and the ocean are called three main ecosystems of globe. As a result of the extensive use of oil, the coastal wetland ecosystems are seriously destroyed by the oil pollutants. The author took the coastal wetland as an example and reviewed the relevant literatures published latest years. Based on those literatures, the impacts of oil pollution on the wetland soils, plants and microbes are summarized to look forward to providing the relevant information for the protection of the coastal wetland ecosystems.
