My latest interview on Reophilia is with Dr Rhonda Butcher, where she describes her rather meandering career as a wetland ecologist and environmental consultant. We talk about her early work at the Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre in the 1980s with Terry Hillman, John Hawking, Russ Shiel and others, her collaboration with Alan Yen and Richard Marchant at the National Museum in Melbourne, her PhD at Monash under Sam Lake’s supervision, and various serendipitous events that led her to become a well-respected environmental consultant in freshwater, as she heads Water’s Edge Consulting.
Aims of this site
This site and blog is mostly about the science of rivers, although it will include cultural aspects of rivers when they catch my eye and take my fancy. It will highlight ideas, concepts and research of interest to students, researchers and managers.
