Trophic interactions in Ethiopian rivers and dams for ecosystem management


The linkages between terrestrial and aquatic systems can influence biotic interactions in rivers and dams. The study will assess the impacts of anthropogenic activities on the food web structures of Ethiopian rivers and dams by combining the isotopioc ratios of carbon and nitrogen with ecololgical modelling.
