Title: The role of hydrology in the ecology of Cooper Creek, Central Australia : implications for the flood pulse concept / Jim Puckeridge.
Author: Puckridge, James Terence
Issue Date: 1999
School/Discipline: Dept. of Zoology
Abstract: Examines the generality of the Flood Pulse Concept as a model for the role of flow in large floodplain rivers of all climatic zones and reviews the literature on hydrology-biology relations, with particular reference to the ecology of riverine fish. Using techniques of ordination, clustering and analysis of similarities (ANOSIM), examines the relations between flow variability, econology and climate in large rivers worldwide. Using a fie-year database for Cooper Creek in Central Australia, relates structures of fish, macroinvertebrate and zooplankton assemblages and indices of fish health and behaviour to hydrology at several spatial and temporal scales. These relations are established using multivariate techniques, univariate correlation and regression, and neural networks modelling.
