Biodiversity in the City : issue 1
19 Albury animal kingdom Paul Humphries Paul is an ecologist who spends a lot of time splashing around in rivers and wetlands looking at the relationship between river flow and fish and macroinvertebrates. His work has included the study of the life history of several species of freshwater fish in southeastern Australia and habitat use of fish in estuaries in Western Australia and flow--related aspects of the ecology of fish and macroinvertebrates in Tasmania and the Murray--Darling Basin. His current research interests include: the ecology and recruitment processes associated with the early life history of fishes, the relationship between flow and habitat use of fishes and macroinvertebrates, movement patterns of fish in rivers and the history of environmental changes associated with rivers in the Murray--Darling Basin. From the collections of Charles Sturt University, both live and preserved specimens of the most common animal phyla on Earth will be displayed. Scientists and students will be on hand to demonstrate and describe the variety of life that makes up the animal kingdom.
