Historical stream salinity trends and catchment salt balances in the Murray-Darling Basin, Australia
This paper summarizes the results from a study of historical stream salinity trends and catchment salt balances within the Murray-Darling Basin, Australia. A broad analysis of stream salinization wasExpand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis supports a Gondwanan origin of the Hyriidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Unionida) and the paraphyly of Australasian taxa.
The freshwater mussel family Hyriidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Unionida) has a disjunct trans-Pacific distribution in Australasia and South America. Previous phylogenetic analyses have estimated theExpand
Bivalves in a bottleneck: taxonomy, phylogeography and conservation of freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionoida) in Australasia
The conservation biology of Australasian freshwater mussels is hindered by lack of a taxonomic framework that employs molecular data as a complement to shell characters, larval forms and internalExpand
Models to predict the effects of environmental flow releases on wetland inundation and the success of colonial bird breeding in the Lachlan River, NSW
River regulation and water extraction have substantially reduced the flooding of wetlands along inland NSW rivers. More natural inundation regimes are being restored through specific environmentalExpand
Assessing effects of flow alteration on macroinvertebrate assemblages in Australian dryland rivers
Summary 1. Possible impacts of water-resource development on assemblages of freshwater macroinvertebrates were investigated in the upper Darling River and some of its tributaries in north-westernExpand
Using the essential biodiversity variables framework to measure biodiversity change at national scale
Abstract The essential biodiversity variables (EBV) framework was developed primarily to improve the detection of significant changes in global biodiversity. Its application at national level mustExpand
Changes in the distributions of freshwater mussels (Unionoida: Hyriidae) in coastal south-eastern Australia and implications for their conservation status
The conservation of freshwater mussels is neglected in Australia, and poor historical data may mask trends in species’ range and abundance. A combined-evidence approach using published data, targetedExpand
