Abstract

The littoral zone of the River Murray in South Australia is described, with particular reference to the effects of high turbidity and the impact of water level changes associated with a series of weirs. This zone is regarded as of special significance for the ecology of the river. It is suggested that the concept of a littoral boundary may be important in the management and conservation of rivers in other regions. (D.W.T.)
