The broad objective of this study is to target macroinvertebrates from a specific habitat to address questions relating to changes in macroinvertebrate abundance and community composition as a result of environmental change: in this case, the effects of weirs on the macroinvertebrates of the Mallee Tract. The specific objectives of the study are: 1. To determine whether macroinvertebrate communities differ between the weir pool and free-flowing sections of the Mallee Tract of the River Murray. 2. To examine other spatial and temporal trends in the distribution of macroinvertebrate communities.
