Diatoms and water quality within the south-east of South Australia

Principal Investigators: Tibby and Barr

Drs John Tibby and Cameron Barr have recently commenced a project examining the relationship between diatoms (a type of algae) and water quality in the streams and drains of south-east of South Australia. The project is funded by the Environment Protection Authority. It is hoped that this project will facilitate a better understanding of water quality "thresholds", where substantial biological change occurs as a result of changing water quality. If such thresholds are identified they may be used to help refine South Australia's water quality guidelines.
