The Kimberley freshwater fish fauna is the least studied in Australia; its true biodiversity and evolutionary history are unknown. The aim of my project is to assess the true freshwater fish biodiversity in the Kimberley using a combination of genetic and morphological approaches, and to investigate the influence of past and present geological and climatic processes on the evolution of these communities and their distributions. James was a post-doc at the University of Melbourne writing a field guide to the freshwater fishes of the Kimberley, was a freshwater ecologist at NIWA, New Zealand for 2 years, then moved to the Arthur Rylah Institute in Victoria as a freshwater ecologist.
