Jamie Kaye

Jamie is a Principal Scientist at Water Technology’s Waterways and Ecology group based in Wangaratta. He has spent the past 25 years working around rivers and riparian areas, assessing the condition of works and vegetation, and prescribing ways to improve health and habitat.

Much of Jamie’s work has involved the design and application of a range of monitoring methods to measure the condition of vegetation, other biota, habitats and physical form. He is experienced in the assessment and management of riparian water frontages, the development of minimum standards and the design of vegetation works audits. Jamie has established monitoring at numerous riparian works sites and has a very clear understanding of the most appropriate and efficient ways to assess waterway condition parameters.

Jamie hopes to provide delegates with an appreciation of vegetation structure and quality, what parameters to look for and how to best measure current condition or monitor condition into the future.
