Findings from my Honours research were presented at the ASFB Conference in Sydney 2015. The presentation begins by briefly introducing the definition behind aestivation, before touching on the climate change that has occurred within the south-west of Western Australia. Following this, the two model species, salamanderfish and black-stripe minnow were introduced, before aims of research, methods and results were discussed. Finally, I concluded the talk with the significance of the findings including potential increases in listing for both species, the potential for creating artificial refuge pools to help increase the resilience of each species, and finally areas of future research. Acknowledgements for co-authors, and collaborators are listed at the end, and my sincere apologies if I have left anyone from this. This presentation provides bullet points on each slide, and is best viewed accompanying the full thesis paper
