Ecohydrological regionalisation of Australia: a tool for management and science

Ecohydrological regionalisation of Australia: a tool for management and science

River classifications identify the key features that make rivers different or similar and so provide a tool by which the insights and knowledge gained in one river or region may be meaningfully applied or transferred to another.  This project has endeavoured to develop a regional classification of Australia’s rivers based on ecologically relevant aspects of their hydrology (i.e. an ecohydrological classification).
