Abstract

Samantha Aird investigated the dynamics in the use of molluscs by the Woppaburra People over a 5000-year period. High-resolution datasets and Woppaburra traditional ecological knowledge identified the sustained seasonal use of a gastropod species – the Moon Turban. Results are being used to improve fisheries and cultural heritage management.
