The Freshwater Fish group recently contributed to a collaborative journal paper (Morrongiello et al. 2011) that reviews the implications of climate change for Australia's freshwater fish.  The paper, which brought together a range of scientists from throughout Australia, predicts that many regions of the continent, particularly south-western Australia, face a dire threat due to reduced rainfall and more extreme temperatures.  It concludes that existing anthropogenic impacts need to be better addressed to help Australia's fish be more resistant and resilient to the impacts of these predicted changes.
