About this book

The Rivers Program Publications Reference Kit presents the results of the Murray-Darling Basin Commission Riverine Program, which was initiated to counter the degradation of river, stream and floodplain wetland environments in the Basin. The kit is the result of a strategic review of 74 projects from the Riverine Program. Summaries are provided for 45 of these projects and the remainder are listed. The projects are grouped into five themes: 1. Understanding the Basin 2. Managing Catchments 3. Managing Rivers 4. Managing Fish 5. Managing Wetlands Each theme is represented by a superbly illustrated full-colour booklet that summarises knowledge from the Riverine Program and presents the key issues for each theme.
