  • Discover and quantify biodiversity patterns and relationships in intermittent rivers

    • Compile and synthesize data on intermittent river biodiversity and habitat
    • Provide policy-makers and resource managers tools for effective management and restoration of intermittent rivers
    • Raise awareness about the importance of intermittent rivers with scientists, managers, and the public
