About this book

Freshwater in the Mediterranean basin is of huge economic, environmental and livelihood importance. However, with a growing population and an increasing number of tourists, the freshwater resources are under great pressure. Since the threatened status of plants and animals is one of the most widely used indicators for assessing the condition of ecosystems and their biodiversity, an assessment was undertaken for freshwater fish in this region. The assessment aims to assist in regional planning through the provision of a baseline dataset. It also hopes to encourage development of a network of regional experts to enable future assessments and the continued updating of the baseline dataset.

The CD-ROM contains a Species Summary, Species Distributions (shape files), a SIS DEM database that holds all information collated during the assessment, and a copy of the report in pdf-format.
