Abstract

The information obtained from the social research complements that collected from the biophysical investigations. Pictorial conceptual models were constructed to synthesise all of these findings to assist natural resource managers and landholders in making decisions about the future management of Lake Cowal under projected climate change scenarios. Information presented in this thesis advances our current understanding of the biophysical characteristics of inland ephemeral wetlands. It also identifies the importance of local ecological knowledge in the application of wetland management, and contributes a further case study to demonstrate how the use of an interdisciplinary approach adds richness to findings that would not otherwise be observed through a single disciplinary approach.
