Title Details
Freshwater Ecoregions of North America by Abell, Robin A., et al.
Freshwater Ecoregions of North America: A Conservation Assessment
by Abell, Robin A., et al.
With nearly every freshwater system suffering from some degree of degradation and conservation resources limited, there is an urgent and practical need to set priorities. As an initial step in identifying those areas where protective and restorative measures should be implemented first, World Wildlife Fund-US assembled a team of leading scientists to conduct a conservation assessment of freshwater ecoregions. This volume presents that assessment and outlines measures that must be taken to conserve, and in many cases restore, native biodiversity. The book identifies freshwater ecoregions that support globally outstanding biological diversity, assesses the types and immediacy of threats to North American ecoregions, identifies gaps in information that hamper an accurate evaluation of biodiversity, and provides a broad-scale framework for conservation activities. In addition, it offers appendixes that provide detailed descriptions of methodologies, raw scores and statistical analysis of results, and an integrated biological distinctiveness and conservation status index. Also included are 21 full-color maps.
