Making the dead 'speak'
30 OCTOBER 2012
A Charles Sturt University (CSU) ecologist will present his ideas on how looking into history can help conserve and manage freshwater resources, including the Murray Darling Basin. Dr Paul Humphries, a researcher with CSU’s Institute for Land, Water and Society (ILWS), will present a public lecture on the use of historical approaches to understand past environmental conditions. “This will tell us how the Murray Darling Basin has got to the state it is in today, and how this knowledge can be used to set more realistic environmental targets and so help improve river management,” Dr Humphries said. The lecture will start at 4pm on Thursday 1 November in Room 202, CD Blake Lecture building (751), CSU in Albury-Wodonga, off Elizabeth Mitchell Drive, Thurgoona.
