Giving freshwater biodiversity a seat at the table
Researchers from 90 scientific institutions around the world have found that research into and protection of freshwater biodiversity lags far behind that of terrestrial and marine areas. They have published a research agenda in the journal Ecology Letters with 15 priorities to better research and protect biodiversity in lakes, rivers and wetlands.
