Ecological responses to variable water regimes in arid-zone wetlands: Coongie Lakes, Australia

Puckridge, J. T.; Costelloe, Justin F; Reid, Julian


In dryland rivers, interactions between flow variability and complex geomorphology expose floodplain wetlands to long-term patterns of flooding and drying and highly variable short-term events. We consider whether the abundance and diversity of fish, macroinvertebrate and zooplankton communities in wetlands of the Coongie Lakes complex are influenced by long-term water regimes. To relate biological changes to changes in water regime, mean values of assemblage indices were ranked and correlated...[Show more]
