Abstract

Macrophytes, plankton samples, salinity and depth data were collected from wetlands in October 1981. Species diversity and distributions are recorded and relationships drawn between macrophytes and plankton occurrence. An examination of the data of Geddes et al. (1981) enables comparisons of species composition in a similar range of Western Australian lakes in 1978 at a different stage in the seasonal cycle. Comparison with the biota of salt lakes in Australia's eastern states and elsewhere lead to biogeographical speculations for the macrophytes and for some of the planktonic species.
