I am not quite certain how I should define the location of my local observations. Maybe someone can help ...
I live on a small island which is inside a lagoon. Should I call that coastal or marine? Bearing in mind that the island is built up and mainly residential. So are we talking urban? Then some of my observations will very likely be made in some of the reclaimed land areas around the lagoon...should they be classed as wetlands? The only one which would seem fairly obvious to me is if I add something from the beach...I assume that would be coastal.
Any help on this one before I get well and truly tangled will be much appreciated!
As silly as this seems, I assume that the difference is fairly important to those who are collecting data for any useful purposes.
