1.Environmental flows are a key restoration technique for conserving ecological function in flow-degraded rivers. Species-specific, flow-biotic relationships are increasingly being used to determine environmental flow needs and manage their use ; however, many of these relationships are poorly described.
2.We evaluate relationships between environmental variables and spawning intensity for a fish assemblage from the Murray River, Australia over a ten year period. We developed a hierarchical multi-species model that accounted for incomplete detection to compare spawning outcomes of native and non-native species using realistic alternative water management scenarios.(...)
