Conservation and restoration of aquatic ecosystems  

Collection Overview

We are facing a global biodiversity and environmental crisis that poses serious risks to human welfare. Among the different ecosystems on Earth, aquatic ecosystems are experiencing the fastest rates in species extinction and ecosystem degradation. Given that these ecosystems are highly valuable both in terms of biodiversity and ecosystem services, we need to take action to improve their management. Conservation and restoration are two powerful management tools that can help to prevent and reverse human impacts on aquatic ecosystems. During the last decades, remarkable methodological advances have been made in the field of conservation (e.g. systematic conservation planning) and restoration (e.g. bioengineering). This JoVE Methods Collection will visually explain some of the most relevant methods for conserving and restoring aquatic ecosystems and discuss their potential for reversing the global biodiversity and environmental crisis that aquatic ecosystems face.
