Why?

Project Objective: Building on decades of floodplain-focused research in the Amazon by consortium members, we will improve characterization of Amazonian whitewater floodplain habitats and inundation dynamics, allowing us to 1) scale up existing fish, floodplain forest, and phytoplankton biodiversity datasets, 2) evaluate the potential impacts of regional drivers such as climate, land use change, and dams on floodplain habitats, and 3) engage at local and regional scale a large panel of stakeholders in looking for sustainable strategies for wetlands preservation.
Call Objective: The Call addresses two major (non-exclusive) priorities:

- Development and application of scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services across spatial scales of relevance to multiple types of decisions;

- Consideration of multiple dimensions of biodiversity and ecosystem services in biodiversity scenarios.
