Extended Experimental Investigation | Bulimba Creek

Introduction













Home | Introduction | Aim & Hypothesis | Materials | Method | Results | Discussion | Conclusion | Bibliography | Appendix




















Brisbane is a city of catchments. These catchments support an abundance of aquatic life as well as a diversity of vegetation. However, with the advent of European settlement and consequent change to the landscape of Brisbane, the ecosystems in the creeks have been stressed, altered or changed. Creeks such as Bulimba Creek collect the run-off from precipitation that falls on the paths, roads and houses created by humans, as well as various forms of debris such as fertilizer, loose soil and effluent. As part of this investigation, the human impact of clearing, settlement and agriculture on the ecosystems of Bulimba Creek will be analysed with data collected on water quality, bacteria cultures and observations of land use, flora and fauna and environmental changes such as erosion.
