IRBAS: Intermittent River Biodiversity Analysis and Synthesis

Advancing the Science and Management of Intermittent Rivers and Streams

IRBAS gathers a research team of international, knowledgeable and productive scientists to achieve the IRBAS project objectives:

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
  • Provide an open-access data repository for all projects related to non-perennial rivers and streams
