Biodiversity in European Shallow Lakes: a Multilevel-Multifactorial Field Study

  • Chapter

Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD,volume 191)

Abstract

This chapter is based on the premise that the precipitous decline in freshwa- ter wetlands and species can only be arrested through conservation and sus- tainable management at a large scale, based on water (usually river) basins. A number of approaches to large-scale freshwater wetlands conservation are presented and assessed to draw conclusions on future conservation priori- ties.
