Salinisation of freshwaters

Researchers from the Institute of Aquatic Ecology Centre for Ecological Research have been involved in setting global research priorities for freshwater salinisation. Their review article was published in Trends in Ecology and Evolution, one of the most prestigious journals in ecology.

Increasing salinity in freshwaters is one of the most pressing surface water problems facing the world today, threatening biodiversity and ecosystem services to society. To identify research gaps and future research priorities, an international team of researchers has now proposed a H2020 AQUACOSM-plus project with the Centre for Ecological Research.
