Lucena-Moya, Paloma; Brawata, Renee; Kath, Jarrod; Harrison, Evan; El Sawah, Sondoss; Dyer, Fiona

Description

Bayesian networks (BNs) are a popular tool in natural resource management but are limited when dealing with ecological assemblage data and when discretizing continuous variables. We present a method that addresses these challenges using a BN model developed for the Upper Murrumbidgee River Catchment (south-eastern Australia). A selection process was conducted to choose the taxa from the whole macroinvertebrate assemblage that were incorporated in the BN as endpoints. Furthermore, two different...[Show more]
