Altered Flow Regimes Synthesis Report (Bunn et al October 2014)
With a focus on the Murray-Darling Basin, a collaborative research team examined key ecological gaps relating to environmental flow management, including: analysis of flow regimes, ecological assets, key habitats and refugia; research on flow-dependent ecological responses; assessment of aquatic habitat condition and trends; and the development of ecological models to integrate information for conservation and resource delivery planning.
Flow Dependent Ecological Responses (Kingsford et al October 2014)
This report focuses on four major research areas in the Murray-Darling Basin – one in-channel system, the Edward-Wakool, and three floodplain systems; the Macquarie Marshes, the Lowbidgee wetland and the Barmah-Millewa Forest. The project derived specific conceptual models for each of the organisms and processes investigated and defined them spatially in terms of (1) in-channel, and (2) floodplain and wetlands.
