Services and capabilities
MDFRC generates knowledge to aid in the protection and improvement of the¬†health of rivers, floodplains, wetlands and water storages in the Murray Darling Basin.¬†
Ecological advice and solutionsThe core business of the MDFRC is the generation of scientific advice - fundamental freshwater ecological knowledge - to support effective sustainable management of the ecology of the Basin. This knowledge is generated through both long-term and short-term research projects and active involvement in the adaptive management of the freshwater, environmental assets of the Basin. MDFRC research focuses on developing an understanding of freshwater ecosystem function in the highly variable and geographically dispersed systems of the Basin. Central to the role of the MDFRC is that it provides long-term research and has already developed monitoring systems and science over a considerable timeframe.
Design, assess and evaluateThe scientific research undertaken by the MDFRC is designed to generate fundamental ecological knowledge and synthesise system understanding.
