Global FADA checklists

The Freshwater Animal Diversity Assessment (FADA) is an informal network of scientists specialised in freshwater biodiversity. BioFresh supports FADA to collate and/or construct global checklists of multiple groups of freshwater organisms and their integration in the taxonomic backbone of the BioFresh data portal.

Freshwater macro-invertebrates
With this initiative BioFresh constructs a global checklist of freshwater macro-invertebrate groups which are currently missing from the BioFresh database, including Coleoptera, Diptera, Hemiptera and Odonata (together over 50,000 species). The data-screening work includes adapting and/or completing synonymy lists, and adding faunistic and distributional information. In total about 30,000 additional species names will be included in the BioFresh species registry.

Freshwater aquatic and wetland plants
With this initiative BioFresh constructs a global checklist of species classified as “freshwater aquatic and wetland plants” as the taxonomic backbone of the BioFresh portal. In total about 30,000 additional species names will be included in the BioFresh species registry. This will result in the most comprehensive global list of freshwater aquatic and wetland plants as a key new resource for many scientists working in the world of freshwater biodiversity conservation.
Status: Completed.
