Vegetation

Chapter


Abstract


  • According to the flood pulse concept (Junk et al. 1989), vegetation responds to characteristics

    of the flood pulse, including flood timing, duration and rate of rise and fall. However, the

    response of vegetation will vary depending on plant adaptations, characteristics of the flood or /

    drought, and whether the flood is regarded as a subsidy or a stress (see Chapter 1). This chapter

    explores the response of vegetation to water and, more specifically, the water requirements that

    will promote the growth of vegetation within floodplain wetlands. Water requirement profiles

    for individual species are provided.
