Abstract

Three sample studies demonstrate that environmental adaptations were balanced and confused by economic, political and social considerations, and by the evolution of scientific and technological ideas. Selected themes, periods and areas are : modes of organization - centralization and decentralization in Victoria, 1880-1914 ; the formation of irrigation policy - Queensland, 1920-36 ; and institutional change and the bioregional alternative - the Murray-Darling Basin, 1975-2000
