The Murray River is Australia’s economically most important river system. As a result of its economic importance, land use change and river regulation have resulted in ecological degradation of the river and associated river wetlands (known throughout Australia as “billabongs”). Palaeolimnology can provide otherwise unobtainable information about the relative impacts of stressors and identify “refuges” from such impacts. We examine an approximately 1800 year history of water quality and vegetati...

Giant vertebrates dominated many Pleistocene ecosystems. Many were herbivores, and their sudden extinction in prehistory could have had large ecological impacts. We used a high-resolution 130,000-year environmental record to help resolve the cause and reconstruct the ecological consequences of extinction of Australia's megafauna. Our results suggest that human arrival rather than climate caused megafaunal extinction, which then triggered replacement of mixed rainforest by sclerophyll vegetation ...

This region differs from those supporting tropical rainforest in other parts of the world in that it is less continental and geologically much more dynamic. It incorporates some major pieces of continental plate, but its center—the so-called ‘‘Maritime Continent’’ (Ramage, 1968)—is largely a complex interaction zone between the Asian and Australian Plates resulting from the continued movement of the Australian Plate into Southeast Asia (Metcalfe, 2002). The effects of tectonic and volcanic activ...

Shallow lakes have been described as existing in two alternative equilibrium states, dominated by either submerged plants or phytoplankton. Causes of, often catastrophic, shifts between these states have been widely debated but may often result from displacement of the dominant community by stochastic influence. In Australian cut-off river meanders (also known as ‘billabongs’), anecdotal and palaeolimnological evidence suggests widespread loss of aquatic macrophytes since European occupation of ...
