Athalassic wetlands play a pivotal role in sediment and nutrient cycling and retention at the catchment level and are important ecosystems for local and regional biodiversity. Yet, the management of wetlands outside of riverine floodplains (non-riverine wetlands) is difficult, as there is limited understanding of these water bodies and of the processes that threaten them, like secondary salinisation. Accordingly, we describe the patterns of variation in wetland salinity and water chemistry… Expand
