Abstract The I-Tracker Cape York Rapid Wetland Assessment was designed to assist Indigenous land and sea managers to monitor the ecological condition of freshwater habitats on their country by undertaking regular wetland assessments.

The rapid assessment method is based largely on an existing method, the Cape York Freshwater Wetland Assessment developed by the Cape York Marine Advisory Group Environmental Inc. (CYMAG) in 2009. The CYMAG method is an in-depth process that provides detailed data on wetland condition. The I-Tracker rapid assessment provides a method for groups to independently carry out a robust, scientific wetland assessment within a few hours using digital data collection tools and an accompanying scoring system modelled on the CYMAG method.

This booklet will help you complete the Waterplants section of the I-Tracker Cape York Rapid Wetland Assessment. The assessment asks you to count the different types of waterplants (also known as macrophytes) at the wetland you are assessing. You don’t have to know all the names of all the species, just recognise the different plants. The waterplants are divided into four different groups, based on how they grow. These groupings also give you an idea of the habitat they are creating underwater.
