Biodiversity assessment of the Mekong River in northern Lao PDR: A follow up study

The follow-up scoping survey presented in this report builds on the first rapid biodiversity scoping study of the upper stretches of the Mekong conducted in February 2003. It is intended that these surveys will form the basis for regular monitoring and assessment of the biodiversity of the riverine ecosystems, habitats and species in the stretch of the Upper Mekong in Lao PDR. Combined, these surveys provide an overview of the upper Lao Mekong to be made available for further planning of monitoring and assessment activities.
