Australian Saltmarsh Ecology provides the 1st finished evaluation of the ecology and administration of Australian saltmarshes. The earlier 10 years specifically have visible a sustained learn attempt into this formerly poorly understood and missed resource.In ten chapters contributed through specialists in each one self-discipline, the e-book outlines what's identified of the biogeography and geomorphology of Australian saltmarshes, their fish and invertebrate ecology, using Australian saltmarshes by way of birds and insectivorous bats, and the actual demanding situations of administration, together with the regulate of mosquito pests and the difficulty of sea-level upward thrust. It offers a robust argument that coastal saltmarsh is a different and significant habitat liable to the mixed affects of coastal improvement and sea-level upward thrust.

Bridgewater and Cresswell (2003) used a prototype version of this tool, along with published records and personal observations, to define the distribution of saltmarsh species groups throughout the continent. The Interim Bioregionalisation of Australia (IBRA) was used to provide the fundamental spatial unit for this analysis. Their work presented the first systematic presentation of saltmarsh species assemblage distribution in Australia, and is described later in this chapter. 1 of this chapter is a compilation of the known distribution of Australian saltmarsh plants, utilising the completed records for 103 saltmarsh species now found within the Australian Virtual Herbarium.
