Abstract

In this study, the effectiveness of experimentally reinstating a drawdown phase at Dowd Morass, a large, chronically inundated brackish-water wetland in the Gippsland Lakes Ramsar site of south-eastern Australia was examined. Rehabilitation was most successful in sites that had been shallowly flooded prior to drawdown and that remained dry for longest.
