Threats to Freshwater Biodiversity in a Changing World. In Bill Freedman (Ed.), Global Environmental Change, p. 243-253. Dordrecht: Springer Netherlands, 2014 How to Cite?
AbstractFresh waters cover <1 % of the Earth’s surface, yet host around 10 % of known animal species. This biodiversity is threatened by a combination of factors, exacerbated by the position of rivers and lakes as landscape “receivers.” Climate change will intensify competition for water with humans, causing further declines in freshwater biodiversity.
