Brief description Urban waterways are modified and contaminated at levels that cause concern to governments, environmental managers and the general public. Identifying the ecological consequences of contamination is key to managing and restoring these important systems.This project will use cutting edge 'omic technologies in combination with conventional biomonitoring approaches to establish the direct and indirect effects of storm water constituents on ecosystem structure and function. Results and outcomes from this research will feed directly into ecological response models that prioritise management actions for government agencies. We will also train the next generation of scientists in cutting-edge ecological research within a multidisciplinary context.
