Freshwater Information Platform
The EU-funded research project BioFresh established an internet platform bringing together information and data on freshwater biodiversity in a clearly arranged and easily explorable way. These efforts are now being continued through extending the platform, widening its scope from biodiversity issues to all kinds of freshwater ecology, management and research topics. All major outcomes from BioFresh are now available on the Freshwater Information Platform.
BioFresh, November 2009 until April 2014, was the first EU-funded project that focused on the status, trends, pressures and conservation priorities of freshwater biodiversity and its related ecosystem services. Its outcome supports EU biodiversity and water related policies that aim to integrate the protection of freshwater life and the services it provides for human welfare. Information on the project and its outcomes can be found on the BioFresh project website.
