River-floodplain food web subsidies

River-floodplain food web subsidies

As the wet season flows overtop river banks, fish and other animals make the most of expanded feeding grounds, moving out onto the floodplains.  As the floodwaters recede, these animals take the nutrients and energy obtained from the floodplain, back to the river channel.  This project has described floodplain food webs, quantified the contribution of subsidies to, and from the floodplain, and determined how some current land management practices are affecting the floodplain food webs of northern rivers.
