In explaining the concept of "property" in the management of water resources, this article begins by exploring the general meaning of "property" in language, economics and law, and the specific rights that attach to it. The management of fisheries in Australian law is used to illustrate the nature of communal and statutory rights of access and the legal characteristics and functions of property rights that form the doctrinal basis of natural resources law. This is followed by an analysis of the strategic foundations for the management of water rights with particular focus on the Water Act 2000 (Qld).

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.
