Patterns of Hydrological Change in the Zambezi Delta, Mozambique




Hydrology is the most important determinant of wetland functions and values worldwide (e.g., Finlayson and Moser 1991, National Research Council 1995, Mitsch and Gosselink 1993). In large floodplains such as the Zambezi Delta, the composition, structure, and function of the system—from the basic biological processes of primary production, decomposition, and consumption to the complex reproductive adaptations of plants and animals—depend on the hydrological connection between river and floodplain (e.g., Welcomme 1979, Poff and Ward 1990, Sparks 1992, Bayley 1995, Heiler et al. 1995).
