Abstract: In June 2010, the Expert Ecological Advisory Workshop I (Workshop I) focused on assessing and quantifying the ecological services provided to the Great Barrier Reef by ecosystems in their natural unmodified state. During Workshop I, it was recognised that all basins within the Great Barrier Reef catchment are modified in some way. As a result, the need to assess the ecological services provided by modified systems was identified. On 10 and 11 August 2011, GBRMPA and the former Queensland Department of Environment and Resource Management hosted a second Expert Ecological Advisory Workshop (Workshop II) to assess the ecological services provided by modified ecosystems. Five basins were selected as case studies: Herbert, Ross, Proserpine, Styx and Calliope basins. Along with assessing the ecological services provided by the modified ecosystems, an evaluation of the likely impact of climate change at a regional scale was carried out.
