Higher biodiversity due to river-expanding measures
Researchers of Utrecht University and Radboud University have revealed the successful combination of a lower flood risk with the start of biodiversity recovery. Multiple groups of endangered and protected species are returning to river areas in the Netherlands. The researchers published their findings on 8 November in the open access journal Science Advances.
To read up on their study, see this storyline, their article or the coverage in Dutch and Swedish news.
