A series of detailed multi-disciplinary field studies was conducted in a small subtropical creek in Eastern Australia. Hydrodynamic and ecological measurements were conducted simultaneously in the river mouth to assess the complexity of the estuarine system, and the interactions between hydraulic engineering, environmental issues, biology and ecology. The results provide unique and original snapshots of subtropical creek system, and the methodology set new standards for comprehensive surveys of small estuaries in sub-tropical zone. A key fea-ture of the field studies was the contrasted outcomes, and the results impact on the selection of "key indicators" (?). Fauna observations showed strong bird and fish activities. But, other re-sults demonstrated on-going pollution.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
