Australian rivers and wetlands research


CSIRO, Australia, has joined forces with other leading Australian research organisations to develop science which will underpin improved management and assessment of the health of Australia's river and wetland ecosystems.

As a result of reduced water availability and unsustainable demands on our environment, Australia's rivers, lakes, wetlands and floodplains have suffered severe degradation. There is growing recognition of the need to supply ‘environmental water' to protect and conserve these important ecosystems.

The Ecological Responses to Altered Flow Regimes Cluster, launched on 15th March by CSIRO at the National Museum of Australia, aims to develop science that will optimise the benefits of this water for aquatic ecosystems.
