Joyce previously held the Nationals' leadership but stepped down in a 2018 scandal when it was revealed the married father-of-four had an affair with a young adviser and she was pregnant.
As a result of today's events, it now appears even more unlikely that the Morrison government will join global peers in setting stronger emissions target, and raises the prospect that a Joyce-led Nationals party will use their position within the Coalition government to stronger pro-coal and gas policies.
The party, which represents farmers and rural voters, has 21 members in the governing centre-right coalition.
David Littleproud continues to be the deputy Nationals leaders, and it is still unknown what changes Mr Joyce will make to his party's ministerial line-up.
That set the backdrop for the leadership contest which Mr Joyce reportedly won by a narrow margin.
Joyce said on Monday, during a press conference following the spill, that he had already spoken with Morrison about the future agreements between the Liberal and Nationals parties.
Barnaby Joyce ousted Michael McCormack and is back in his old job of Nationals Leader, a role that automatically makes him deputy prime minister.

Last February, Mr Joyce had failed to overthrow McCormick.
It's yet another reminder of how politically toxic the climate change debate is here in Australia. The Prime Minister is stuck between two hard pulling forces - worldwide pressure from strategic allies like the United Kingdom and the USA for more robust emissions reduction targets, and a coalition partner that is firmly wedded to the country's fossil fuel industry. The second is about the Prime Minister's domestic political standing with elections looming.
