Diversity of river life

Biodiversity is a feature of aquatic ecosystems that is often valued by different members of the community.  To effectively manage aquatic biodiversity, we need to know where the areas of high biodiversity are.  It is also useful to know what causes some areas to have high biodiversity and others not.  This project has sought to answer these questions and so define biologically unique regions (bioregions) within northern Australia, based on patterns of aquatic biodiversity.
