London 2013, kt., 447 Seiten, Abb. Freshwater fishes are the most threatened large taxon in the world. While fresh waters are globally scarce (< 0.3% of available surface water) they are an ichthyofaunal ‘hotspot’ with >15 000 species, representing c. 53% of all fishes and 25% of all vertebrates. Fresh water is essential for all life (humans, domestic livestock, wild animals, plants and microorganisms) and freshwater fishes are a direct indicator of the health of our planet. Most of the threats to their survival are human induced. Hence, in the long term, our own future will be jeopardized, unless we recognize the high intrinsic and commercial value of fishes and the supporting ecosystem, and take necessary care.
