Abstract

The following is a brief description of how lungfish research at Macquarie University began, of the period in which it flourished, and, most recently, of the winding down of the University's involvement with this research. During this latter period, the Australian lungfish in the wild were threatened by the construction of a megadam in their very limited habitat. Fortunately, this was averted in December 2009, after 3. years of lobbying the Federal Government. They now await another "Aussie" to make them accessible for further research by Australian and international researchers.
