Freshwater emphasis

If it's OK with everyone contributing I'd like to stick to recording the native freshwater species and avoid invasives or the marine environment. The threats to our freshwater taxa are from impoundments, excessive extraction, and pollution, not from invasive species as evident in the US/Canada. In Australia we no longer navigate our freshwater streams with cargo vessels from overseas freshwater lakes etc and that particlar threat is unlikely. If someone wants to start a Marine Project I will help all I can. Declining Hyriids in Australia are the focus of this Project. Thanks for your input. Regards, Chris.

Hyridella glenelgensis is Critically Endangered (IUCN Red List). ...más ↓
