The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
TLDR
Though the threat of extinction is increasing, overall declines would have been worse in the absence of conservation, and current conservation efforts remain insufficient to offset the main drivers of biodiversity loss in these groups.
Global diversity of dragonflies (Odonata) in freshwater
TLDR
Diversity is discussed, the biogeography of dragonflies in the different biogeographical regions is summarised and the total number of species and genera per family perBiogeographical region is given.

Implications of bias in conservation research and investment for freshwater species
Human population growth and economic development threaten the integrity of freshwater ecosystems globally, reducing their ability to support biodiversity and provide ecosystem services. However, our
Altitudinal distribution of rodents (Muridae and Gliridae) on Mt Elgon, Uganda
TLDR
In this study, 13 species belonging to the Muridae were recorded, but only one species Lophuromys flavopunctatus Thomas 1888, occurred in all habitats, and the highest species and individual numbers were found in richly structured vegetation in the Afro-alpine zone.
Sustaining Freshwater Biodiversity in the Anthropocene
Globally, fresh water is a limited resource, covering only about 0.8 % of the world’s surface area. With over 126,000 species living in its ecosystems, freshwater harbours a disproportionate share of
