Samraoui, B. & O’Connell, M.J. (2016). Sebkhas and other wetlands of Saudi Arabia: biodiversity value, threats and perspectives. Arid Land Research and Management. In prep.

Outcomes

The wetlands of Saudi Arabia are located in a water-stressed region that is highly vulnerable to climate change. At present, there is no general information regarding the status and trends of wetland resources and biodiversity in Saudi Arabia. Previous surveys are in desperate need of updating and research data needs to be made accessible. This project will focus on solutions to these needs.
