Conference Paper
Ponds represent important habitats that highly contribute to biodiversity and promote several ecosystem services, both in natural and urban areas. However, invasive species, growing urbanism, pollution, and emergent diseases are continuously threatening such areas, especially in the Mediterranean area, where ponds present unique characteristics. In...
