Abstract Using the 160,000-km 2 drainage basin of the Madre de Dios and Orthon rivers in the southwest Amazon as a test case, we piloted an approach for large-scale conservation planning for freshwater systems characterized by a near-complete lack of biological and physical data. We used newly available spatial and remote sensing datasets, including spaceborne optical and radar observations, and new techniques of spatial data analysis to generate subbasin (⩾100 km 2 ), stream, and floodplain… CONTINUE READING
