The Freshwater Biological Association (FBA), located on the shore of Windermere, in Cumbria and alongside the River Frome at East Stoke in Dorset, is a thriving membership association, independent scientific organisation and a registered charity. Founded in 1929, we promote freshwater science through innovative research, maintained specialist scientific facilities, a programme of scientific meetings, production of publications, and by providing sound independent scientific opinion. The FBA collection of information on freshwater science is one of the finest in the world, covering all aspects of freshwater ecology, as well as pollution, phycology, microbiology, invertebrate taxonomy and ecology, sediment and water chemistry, aquaculture and fisheries management and hydrology. ...

The EPA Wetlands Helpline is a contractor-operated information and referral service which handles requests for information on wetlands regulation, legislation and policy pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, wetlands values and functions, and wetlands agricultural issues. The Helpline acts as a first point of contact for EPA's Wetlands Division, which is part of the Office of Wetlands, Oceans and Watersheds (OWOW). As of January 1, 2002, the Helpline has been co-located within the EPA's Water Resource Center allowing both Helpline and Resource Center customers access to the full spectrum of water-related public information available from EPA. ...

Der Verband Deutscher Sporttaucher (VDST) startete mit Unterstützung des Bundesamtes für Naturschutz (BfN) einen neuen Wettbewerb, die NEOBIOTA-Watcher-Aktion 2007 um mehr über das Vorkommen von neuen Tieren und Pflanzen in unseren heimischen Gewässern zu erfahren. Vor allem in aquatischen Lebensräumen gibt es viele eingeführte Arten - und abgesehen von Tauchern und Taucherinnen wagen nur wenige Menschen einen Blick unter die Wasseroberfläche. Noch ist zu wenig über die Verbreitung und die Lebensweise dieser NEOBIOTA bekannt. Halten Sie bei jedem Tauchgang in unseren heimischen Gewässern nach diesen neuen Arten Ausschau und melden Sie jede entdeckte Art. ... [Information des Anbieters, verändert]
Scientists and water managers have collected vast amounts of data on freshwater biodiversity. Nonetheless it is often impossible to be certain of the geographic range of a species. Why is this? The existing data from all of these studies are widely dispersed, gathered in locally-managed databases, many of which are not publicly available. In summary, the pieces of the global freshwater biodiversity puzzle are scattered, and it is difficult even to find them. What a story they could they tell if all of the pieces were combined and easily accessible to scientists, policy makers and planners? Such an integrated and accessible dataset will be used to improve and establish effective plans for conservation and for a better understanding of the services provided by aquatic ecosystems. BioFresh will improve the capacity to protect and manage freshwater biodiversity by building an information platform as a gateway for scientific research on freshwater biodiversity, by raising awareness of the importance of freshwater biodiversity and its role in providing ecosystem services, and by predicting the future responses of freshwater biodiversity to multiple stressors in the face of global change. ...

Biohydrology 2013 addresses many contemporary issues surrounding water scarcity, climate change and increase pressure on land. The conference focusses on the interaction between biological and hydrological systems, including positive impacts such as water harnessing and flood mitigation, and negative aspects including threats to food production, water repellency and environmental degradation through unsustainable land use practices. Experts from hydrology, ecology, soil science, geography, biology, forestry and engineering will meet together in a forum designed to get different disciplines working together. ...
