Factsheet MMCP Collaboration - Understanding the ecological consequences of macroinvertebrate community-structure change
posterposted on 01.03.2019 by Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems
Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
The purpose of this project is to determine the nutritional value of key macroinvertebrates in the Murray River and compare that to the dietary requirements of large-bodied native fish to see if the changes observed in macroinvertebrate community structure in the Murray River have affected fish nutrition. If they have, there may be a need to refocus management interventions away from those targeted directly at large-bodied native fish, and more towards those that focus on their prey items.
