a function that translates hydrological changes into the distribution or range of potential ecosystem outcomes that may arise from those changes. Within bioregional assessments, hydrological changes are described by hydrological response variables, ecosystem outcomes are described by receptor impact variables, and a receptor impact model determines the relationship between a particular receptor impact variable and one or more hydrological response variables. Receptor impact models are relevant to specific landscape classes, and play a crucial role in quantifying potential impacts for ecological water-dependent assets that are within the landscape class. In the broader scientific literature receptor impact models are often known as ‘ecological response functions’.
