Abstract

A series of detailed multi-disciplinary field studies was conducted in a small subtropical creek : i.e., Eprapah Creek, Victoria Point Queensland. Hydrodynamic and ecological measurements were conductedsimultaneously in the river mouth to assess the complexity of the estuarine zone and the interactions between hydraulic engineering, environmental issues, biology and ecology. The results provide unique and original snapshots of a subtropical creek, and the methodology sets new standards for the comprehensive surveys of estuaries in the sub-tropical zone. A key feature of the field studies was the contrasted outcomes, and the resultsimpact on the selection of "key indicators". Fauna observations showed strong bird and fish activities, but other results demonstrated on-going pollution.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
