Prof Angela Arthington honoured

Emeritus Professor Angela Arthington, a member of the Society’s Council, is the 2018 recipient of the Australian Society for Limnology Medal, its highest award, presented for significant contributions to freshwater science. Prof Arthington has published widely on river and fish ecology, environmental flows, aquatic biodiversity and conservation biology. She has over 280 publications and almost 20,000 citations to her credit. Angela was a member of the academic staff at Griffith University from 1976 until 2011 and has supervised 35 honours, masters and PhD students.
