Fish diversity in freshwater systems

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Water Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Although freshwater ecosystems such as rivers, lakes and wetlands occupy less than 2% of the Earth's total land surface, they provide a wide range of habitats for a significant proportion of the world's plant and animal species. This graphic explains which areas of the world have high and low populations of fish species and of endemic fish.
