Benthic Metabolism as an Indicator of Stream Ecosystem Health
We tested direct and indirect measures of benthic metabolism as indicators of stream ecosystem health across a known agricultural land-use disturbance gradient in southeast Queensland, Australia.Expand

Spatial prediction on a river network
This article develops methods for spatially predicting daily change of dissolved oxygen (Dochange) at both sampled locations (134 freshwater sites in 2002 and 2003) and other locations of interestExpand

Integration of science and monitoring of river ecosystem health to guide investments in catchment protection and rehabilitation
SUMMARY 1. Stream ecosystem health monitoring and reporting need to be developed in the context of an adaptive process that is clearly linked to identified values and objectives, is informed byExpand

Capacity of fatty acid profiles and substrate utilization patterns to describe differences in soil microbial communities associated with increased salinity or alkalinity at three locations in South
Abstract Fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) profiles, together with Biolog substrate utilization patterns, were used in conjunction with measurements of other soil chemical and microbiological propertiesExpand

Wheat breeding nurseries, target environments, and indirect selection for grain yield
Use of appropriate nursery environments will maximize gain from selection for yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in the target population of environments of a breeding program. The objective ofExpand

A broad-scale analysis of links between coastal fisheries production and mangrove extent: A case-study for northeastern Australia
The paradigm that mangroves are critical for sustaining production in coastal fisheries is widely accepted, but empirical evidence has been tenuous. This study showed that links between mangroveExpand

Using the Gini coefficient with BIOLOG substrate utilisation data to provide an alternative quantitative measure for comparing bacterial soil communities
A measure quantifying unequal use of carbon sources, the Gini coefficient (G), has been developed to allow comparisons of the observed functional diversity of bacterial soil communities. ThisExpand

Are alien fish a reliable indicator of river health
1. The ability of many introduced fish species to thrive in degraded aquatic habitats and their potential to impact on aquatic ecosystem structure and function suggest that introduced fish mayExpand

Terrestrial invertebrates of dry river beds are not simply subsets of riparian assemblages
Dry river beds are common worldwide and are rapidly increasing in extent due to the effects of water management and prolonged drought periods due to climate change. While attention has been given toExpand

The Use of Phospholipid Fatty Acid Analysis to Measure Impact of Acid Rock Drainage on Microbial Communities in Sediments
The impact of acid rock drainage (ARD) and eutrophication on microbial communities in stream sediments above and below an abandoned mine site in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia, was quantified byExpand
