This seminar with review our ecological understanding of the poorly researched aquatic river/floodplain ecosystems of tropical Australia. Rivers and floodplains of northern Australia are the last relatively undisturbed tropical riverine landscapes in the world and provide a valuable case study for understanding the productivity, diversity and resilience of tropical river-floodplain systems. These wetlands have broad significance as hotspots for maintaining local and regional biodiversity and have important conservation implications.
