Abstract

Floodplains are unique ecosystems. This article focuses on the importance of hydrological inputs to floodplains through 1) their influence on the arrangement of landforms and vegetation communities and 2) the connections between flooding regimes and the regeneration and turnover time of floodplain vegetation. The development of models for managing flows to achieve different restoration targets is the start of an integrated approach to restoring complex floodplain ecosystems
