Classification of natural flow regimes in Australia to support environmental flow management

Kennard, Mark; Pusey, Brad; Olden, Julian; Mackay, Stephen; Stein, Janet; Marsh, Nick


The importance of hydrologic variability for shaping the biophysical attributes and functioning of riverine ecosystems is well recognised by ecologists and water resource managers. In addition to the ecological dependences of flow for aquatic organisms, human societies modify natural flow regimes to provide dependable ecological services, including water supply, hydropower generation, flood control, recreation and navigation. Management of scarce water resources needs to be based on sound...[Show more]
