Assessment of ecological risk associated with irrigation in the Fitzroy basin

Phase 2: Analysis and characterisation of risk with emphasis on effects on macroinvertebrates

L Duivenvoorden, CQU

Product Information

This project in the Fitzroy catchment in Queensland was one of three case studies used to illustrate how ERA may be employed in the management of irrigation areas in Australia. In the problem formulation stage of the ERA process community stakeholders identified issues and helped to prioritise research needs for the second phase.
These were that the research should focus on the irrigation area scale and the impact of the decline of water quality on macroinvertebrate populations with emphasis on determining the relative contribution of various environmental factors to changes in these populations.
