Upper Wetlands Biodiversity Status

Using Biological Condition Gradient (BCG) model, bird indicators classified sites according to impact of human activities (see Figure 1 and 2). Detailed work is underway to use other taxa groups (e.g. Macro-invertebrates, mammals, fish, plants, amphibians and reptiles) for assess the health integrity of the wetland sites.
