Abstract

This paper reports the response of arid land plant species to high-rainfall-driven episodic flood events and how grazing pressure from native and introduced herbivores can impact on native species response. A systematic study was conducted to understand the botanical composition in flooded and control areas on 25 m2 fenced and unfenced plots subjected to flooding and non-flooding. For 6 years following flooding, species richness in the flooded area was twice that of unflooded areas. In particular, 27 native species from 13 families were recorded both in the enclosed and open plots located in the flooded area
