Abstract

The aim of this paper is to determine the effect of flooding on soil fertility. To do this, the AA. examine spatial patterns in soil N, P and carbon (C) across the floodplain. The AA. use the data and a literature review to generate hypotheses for the dominant processes affecting soil soil fertility on the floodplain and, by extension, the effects on fertility of changes in flood frequency. A better understanding of the effects of flooding on soil fertility and floodplain productivity should improve the capacity to manage the water resources for better ecological outcomes within the constraints imposed by a desired level of water resource development
