About this book

This is a comprehensive work on the Darling River. It contains scientific and technical information that is necessary for the management of the river and its catchments. Chapters on natural systems illustrate the changes in species and habitat and identify what is necessary for their survival. Other chapters on sustainable land use examine environmental flows, responses to land use and the conservation of terrestrial environments. The final chapter looks at the future of the Darling River and its catchmentst. It considers the need to limit the exploitation of natural resources by limiting river diversions and controlling vegetative clearing. It also looks at new development opportunities that will occur through innovation, new enterprises and higher value uses of resources and attention to alternative land uses.
