             abstract = "Study region: The Amazonian wetlands of Bolivia, known as the 
                         Llanos de Moxos, are believed to play a crucial role in regulating 
                         the upper Madeira hydrological cycle, the most important southern 
                         tributary of the Amazon River. Because the area is vast and 
                         sparsely populated, the hydrological functioning of the wetlands 
                         is poorly known. Study focus: We analyzed the hydrometeorological 
                         configurations that led to the major floods of 2007, 2008 and 
                         2014. These data, together with flood mapping derived from remote 
                         sensing images, were used to understand the dynamics of the Llanos 
                         during the three flood events. New hydrological insights for the 
                         region: The results showed that large floods are the result of the 
                         superimposition of flood waves from major sub-basins ofthe region. 
                         As a previous study suggested, the dynamics of the floods are 
                         controlled by an exogenous process, created by the flood wave 
                         originating in the Andes piedmont that travels through the 
                         Mamor{\'e} River; and by an endogenous process, which is the 
                         runoff originating in the Llanos. Our study showed that the first 
                         process is evident only at the initial phase of the floods, and 
                         although important for attenuating the rising flood wave, it is of 
                         lesser importance compared to the endogenous process. We conclude 
                         that the endogenous process controls the magnitude and duration of 
                         major floods.",
