Seminar: Ecological costs and benefits of stormwater wetlands

Wetlands are increasingly being constructed around many cities to mitigate the effects of urban stormwater, especially reduced water quality. While the primary purpose of these wetlands is to manage stormwater, they also attract animals whose growth, survival and breeding may be compromised. Alternatively, some wetlands may be important habitats for animals. Ecologist Dr. Rob Hale will present the results of a four year investigation into how urban stormwater treatment wetlands perform as habitats for aquatic animals and highlight how the knowledge generated through this work can help inform future wetland management. Presented by Dr. Rob Hale
