Water regime for wetland and floodplain plants
Water regime for wetland and floodplain plants: a source book for the Murray-Darling Basin was launched at the Commission's Managing Wetlands Workshop held in Canberra on Tuesday 6 September 2011.
This updated volume, authored by Dr Jane Roberts and Mrs Frances Marston, captures the wealth of research knowledge generated over the past decade about effective vegetation management as part of the ecology of our inland wetland and floodplain systems. Nineteen species were selected for their ecological importance and relevance to flows and flow management of Basin wetlands, floodplains and rivers. For each species, details are provided on the water regime, what is known about its ecological dependency on flow and the effect of this on growth, survival and capacity to reproduce.
The book is an invaluable resource for everyone involved in wetlands and floodplain management in the Murray-Darling Basin.
