Managing threats to floodplain biodiversity and Indigenous values

This research looked at the extent and spread of the exotic grasses para grass and olive hymenache on the floodplains within Kakadu National Park and how this is impacting on the Indigenous values of floodplains.

These dense weed grasses have significant negative impacts on floodplain ecosystems and negatively impact on the ability of Indigenous Traditional Owners to access floodplain resources.  The research also examined a range of potential management strategies.
