The movement of propagules within the landscape is an important factor in maintaining the diversity of aquatic and riparian plant communities. Changes in flow regimes, or hydrological connectivity, are likely to significantly impact the distribution of aquatic and riparian plants. Changed connectivity may occur through the disconnection of components of the landscape (i.e. between rivers and wetlands) caused by changes in flow regime, and construction of barriers that physically impede dispersal.
It has been recognised that provision of pathways for the dispersal of seeds and propagules is important in the restoration and rehabilitation of wetlands.
