Hello and welcome to the River Ecology and Research site and blog. This site will include information and opinion concerning the world of rivers, their ecology and conservation in Australia and around the world. It will showcase concepts, ideas and research from practising ecologists and students working and studying in the Albury-Wodonga Region of southeastern Australia.
I aim to present scientifically-based material for those interested in how river ecosystems function, the roles of animals and plants in food webs, ecology-flow relationships of these organisms and much more.
The site and blogs aim to be useful to students – mainly at the undergraduate and post-graduate level, conservation and managers. But there will also be useful links for high school students as well.
I would be pleased to get suggestions about what content might be useful as I continue to construct this site. Kind regards, Paul Humphries
