"[But] even when ecosystems are exposed to freshwater plumes they do not necessarily die."The flood run off, full of sediment and nutrients, could spark increased algal blooms, coral bleaching and coral diseases, he agrees. It could also increase the productivity of some inshore species such as barramundi, mangrove jack, some prawns and sponges."Many plants and animals have mechanisms to cope . however, this event has unusually large amounts of flood run off with suspended material and the prevailing conditions Converse Shoes Womens may be different to previous events."Significant impact to be seen on marine lifeEnvironmental groups have also expressed wide concerns."The plumes of sediment and debris generated by flooding on this scale can have a wide range of impacts on marine habitats and species," said a statement released by the Australian Marine Conservation Society. "From entanglement of marine life in debris such as plastic bags to the smothering effects of large amounts of deposited sediments on sensitive habitats like seagrass meadows and coral reefs."WWF Australia, Converse Maroon High Cut

flushed floodwaters into the reef's inshore areas, particularly off the central Queensland coast near Rockhampton.Though the reef runs for 2300 km down the coast of Queensland, research from James Cook University has revealed that the muddy plumes are already covering more than 10 per cent of its surface area.The risk doesn't end when the floodwater stop flowing, according to Dr Britta Schaffelke, with the Australian Institute of Marine Science in Townsville. "After flooding we see an increased incidence of disease," she told the British science journal Nature this week."So even if the coral initially survive, over the next few months they might still die, or not reproduce, or reduce their growth rate," she said. "They would also be less resilient to any subsequent bleaching events caused by periods of very warm weather, an event that Converse Trainers
