About

Currently trying to understand larval ecology of Murray cod (Maccullochella peeli) in an upland river system ( the Murrumbidgee River in the ACT). In particular the temporal and spatial variation in larval drift and also the potential of otolith microchemistry as a method to understand pre-natal origin of the larvae.
