Research scholarship: The effects of climate change on the ecology of unregulated rivers
La Trobe University
Doctoral research scholarships awarded to outstanding candidates to undertake research aimed at studying the effects of climate change on the ecology of unregulated rivers.
This prestigious scholarship, established by La Trobe University in partnership with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, will be awarded to an outstanding applicant who is interested in addressing questions related to the ecological impacts arising from changing runoff patterns.
The proposed area of focus is on factors that influence population persistence of aquatic species in unregulated rivers affected by the loss of flow. There is scope to apply a range of novel approaches, including spatial modelling, genetic methods, capture- recapture studies, and/or other suitable techniques to better understand how populations can persistence in non-perennial rivers.
