Abstract

A four-step process is presented involving : a hierarchical characterisation of the river system, to assess what mesohabitats are present and where they are located; the determination of flows that would inundate these habitats and perform other key ecological processes; hydrological analyses in which the key hydrological signatures of the river are identified and the impact of water resource development on these is determined; and the derivation of a water management decision tree that enables managers to allocate water to consumptive users during individual flood events. This ecosystem approach is outlined for the Condamine-Balonne River, a large dryland system in Australia
