About this book

One of the main reasons cited for inadequate representation of biodiversity in the development processes is a lack of readily available information on inland water taxa. In response to this need for basic for information on species, the IUCN Species Programme conducted a regional assessment of the status and distribution of 2,261 taxa of freshwater fishes, molluscs, odonates, crabs and selected families of aquatic plants from throughout central Africa. The Status and Distribution of Freshwater Biodiversity in Central Africa is based on the collation and analysis of existing information, and the knowledge of regional experts.
