    Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems is an international journal dedicated to publishing original papers that relate specifically to the conservation of freshwater, brackish or marine habitats and encouraging work that spans these ecosystems. This journal provides a forum in which all aspects of the conservation of aquatic.

    Biology and Conservation of Freshwater Cetaceans in Asia Product Description: This compilation brings together current information on the status of Asian freshwater cetacean populations, the factors that have caused their recent declines, and what can be done to improve their chances for survival. Conservation of Freshwater Fishes includes the first global assessment of the number, type and distribution of threatened freshwater fish species, discussing the features of freshwater fish biology and ecology that render so many species vulnerable to extinction. Introductory chapters on why freshwater fish are so sensitive to environmental.

    Biological Conservation is a leading international journal in the discipline of conservation journal publishes articles spanning a diverse range of fields that contribute to the biological, sociological, ethical and economic dimensions of primary aim of Biological Conservation is the publication of high-quality papers that advance the science .   1. Introduction. Geographical range contraction is one of the fundamental ecological characteristics of species population decline and extinction (Mace et al. ).Developing a more inclusive understanding of the biogeographic pattern, the temporal rate and the ecological correlates of range collapse across different species groups and regions is a crucial line of research for conservation.

Reeves and Brian D. Freshwater cetaceans (including five dolphin species and a porpoise) have declined dramatically in numbers and range, especially in Asia. The Yangtze River dolphin (Lipotes vexillifer) was finally driven to extinction in the last two decades. The threats to freshwater cetaceans are diverse, longstanding, and difficult to assess and manage.

Surveys for shushuks Platanista gangetica were conducted during January to April in Kaptai Lake and the southern rivers of Bangladesh.

A population of at least dolphins was recorded in the Karnaphuli and Sangu rivers and connecting canal. The overall encounter rate was dolphins per km. Density was highest in the lower reaches of the Sangu, where we recorded. True river dolphins as well as marine dolphins that frequent freshwater systems are large animals that have traditionally gone unnoticed by the general public and, in a certain sense, by marine mammal specialists as well.

In fact, only a limited number of researchers have investigated the biology of these dolphin species. This is quite surprising given that these species are.
