Project Details


This project is a collaboration with the NSW DPIE Water division to investigate the role of variable river flows in promoting food web productivity in the Barwon-Darling River of the Murray Darling Basin. The project will involve two short field trips followed by a month-long experiment on campus, and subsequent ecological modelling. The outputs of the project will add to our fundamental knowledge on the relationship between hydrology and food web productivity in lowland river systems and help inform environmental flow management in the Murray Darling Basin.
