Monday Lunch Meeting: Freshwater Marine Ecology and Fiji Communities with Bindiya Rashni, 12:30 for a 1PM start at Cafe 30
Bindiya is currently pursuing her doctoral studies through Massey University in New Zealand to develop the Odonata Index of Fijian Wetland Integrity, an Index of Biotic Integrity for freshwater wetlands. This will be Fiji’s first nationally-owned freshwater wetland assessment tool. It will include the investigation of species composition of aquatic (naiad) and terrestrial adult stages of the endemic genus of damselflies, Nesobasis, across spatial, ecological and anthropic gradients in major and maritime islands of Fiji. Bindiya envisions using this tool to launch a Fiji Aquatics Monitoring Program through NFMV, thereby conducting a national-level rapid assessment of freshwater wetland to produce a wetland status report for Fiji in order to push for wetlands protection legislation.
