This wetland management profile focuses on the arid zone lakes found within Queensland's inland-draining catchments in the Channel Country, Desert Uplands and Mulga Lands bioregions.
Arid-zone swamp wetlands are sites of extraordinary biological diversity when inundated, supporting abundant and diverse waterbirds, native fish, invertebrates and aquatic plants. A highly variable inundation regime means filling of these swamp wetlands is erratic and...
Great Artesian Basin spring wetlands are oases in arid and semi-arid zones. These springs and their surrounding areas are important in environmental, economic and social terms. Threats to these special wetlands include: "
Occurring between the coastal and arid zones state-wide, inland non-arid swamp wetlands are mostly confined to minor basins and small depressions, temporarily inundated and dominated by trees and shrubs. Their conservation values are poorly known but they enrich the biodiversity...
Inland non-arid lakes are natural water bodies that occur predominantly on alluvial soils in Queensland. These lakes depend primarily on rainwater and runoff for their existence and have various characteristics "
