Biodiversity in the City : issue 1
20 Albury pond life Jonathon Howard Jon is a teacher and researcher at Charles Sturt University. His focus is on water and society -- including how people value and use water, and how it is managed. His research has ranged from evaluations of Phoswatch and River Tender to fairness and game theory in regional governance processes. Alexandra Knight Alex is an ecologist whose work has included developing and implementing programs to ensure the recovery of threatened Australian flora and fauna including Malleefowl, Bush-stone Curlew, Brolga, Squirrel Glider and many frog species. Alex has also worked as a ranger for the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service looking after some of the most beautiful natural places in NSW including the Warrumbungles NP, Yathong NR and the Mount Ballow group of NPs in northern NSW. She has a passion for Australian frogs and is currently researching threatened frogs in the Murray-Darling Basin. Wetlands are some of the most diverse environments on Earth and provide habitat for everything from microscopic animals and plants to the some of the rarest birds and fish. In this demonstration, aquatic ecologists and frog experts will have on hand some of the animals that live in these environments and describe why these environments are so important for biodiversity and the role they play in enhancing the health and quality of our river systems.
