We salute the pioneering efforts of the late Professor Richard Norris in the development of the Eco Evidence method. Development of the Eco Evidence software was funded by the eWater Cooperative Research Centre (projects B1 'Multiple drivers of river ecosystems', R2 'Ecological modelling platform', and 'Ecological management'), with most of the programming for the Eco Evidence Analyser completed by Patrick Lea. This paper was funded by Australian Research Council project LP100200170 and the MDBfutures Collaborative Research Network project 'Using an evidence-based approach in the optimisation of water allocation decisions'). Author contributions: J.A.W., M.J.S., S.J.N developed the Eco Evidence method. S.R.W. developed the Eco Evidence Database and the workflow therein, and contributed to programming of the Eco Evidence Analyser. J.A.W. led writing of the manuscript, with K.A.M. providing the case-study application of Eco-Evidence and S.C.dL providing the section on the Eco Evidence Database. All authors contributed to the final version.
