of the flood plain and the relationships between plants animals and
seasonal wet season flooding.   The main part of the volume consists of
descriptions, illustrations and keys to enable identification of the more
than 300 species of plants that grow on the floodplainds of the TOP END of

The book includes an account of almost all fully aquatic plant species in
the Northern Territory including those not found on the floodplain.    A
