Progress towards a global freshwater biodiversity atlas

February 22, 2013

An online atlas providing open access to information on global freshwater biodiversity is an exciting and important future output of the BioFresh project.  The atlas will map primary data available through the new BioFresh data portal as well as make available key map overlays such as the Freshwater Ecoregions. Maps will be accompanied by an up-to-date and authoritative survey of the underlying science and their policy relevance and organized into thematic chapters.

Atlas editor Dr. Jörg Freyhof  of the Leibnitz Institute of Freshwater Ecology explains his vision for the BioFresh Biodiversity Atlas

The Atlas editorial team would welcome suggestions for additional content .  If you have, or know of, maps and overlays relevant to freshwater biodiversity science and policy which you would like to see included in the Atlas please contact Jorg Freyhof email freyhof[a]  or Vanessa Bremerich email  bremerich[a]
