Research & Methods
FreshwaterLife Research and Methods section includes information on experimental and thematic methods, best practise in the field and in the laboratory and past and current projects, results and programmes. You can also access electronic identification tools, the ecological database and management practises and both chemical and biological freshwater monitoring.

Welcome to the FreshwaterLife section on Research and Methods

The objective of this section is to provide you with comprehensive information of a number of aspects of freshwater research under the sub-topic headings listed on the left-hand side of the screen. By clicking on a chosen sub-topic you can access documents, websites, tools, monitoring information etc. You can also access details of case histories and methods arranged under topics relevant to you. For field and laboratory work interactive and downloadable identification keys and comprehensive lists of freshwater publications will help you tackle most freshwater groups. Remember you can add missing topics – just let us know.

How to get started and navigate FreshwaterLife

This worldview – Research and Methods – is designed for researchers and freshwater scientists in academia and elsewhere, as well as those interested in aquatic research, methods and solutions to freshwater problems.

You can navigate the topic tree using the navigation bar on the left hand side of the screen and access the sub-topics by clicking on the title. Another way to see the whole topic structure at a glance is to use the sitemap function, which you can see in the top header.

Under each topic you will find relevant information and knowledge items arranged under the knowledge items tabs. You can participate in discussions, submit comments on journal articles or projects in progress, submit your own results, data, papers and share information.

To easily find the information you are looking for, you can limit your search into one topic and its subtopics, which will enable you to find relevant information quickly and efficiently. Just type in the keyword and select the search option from the dropdown box.
