Abstract

The management of river systems in conservation areas in South Africa is problematic. A framework is developed for predicting changes in river state under different (natural and controlled) flow regimes. The approach involves river classification at ecologically relevant scales, conceptual modelling, process monitoring and mathematical modelling. The ecological relevance of the approach is demonstrated and the results form an appropriate base from which conservationists can negotiate with other water users
