Launch of the first online Global Freshwater Biodiversity Atlas: Biofresh

Biofresh LogoA new online Atlas of freshwater biodiversity presenting spatial information and species distribution patterns has been launched. It provides policy-makers, water managers and scientists with an online, open-access and interactive gateway to key geographical information and spatial data on freshwater biodiversity across different scales. The Atlas is a resource for better, evidenced-based decision making in the area of water policy, science and management. The Atlas is an output of BioFresh – an EU-funded project that is putting together the scattered pieces of information about life in our rivers and lakes, to better understand, manage and protect our freshwaters for generations to come.
