Welcome to the African Freshwater life scratchpad!

**Scratchpad still under construction** 

This site aims to link freshwater scientists across Africa and its associated islands.

The African freshwater scratchpad provides a platform where all resources and available information on African freshwater species can be collected in one place. Species accounts and checklists can be found in the tabs above and will be developed over time. Information on previous AFRESH workshops, funding opportunities, literature, general news, keys and links to relevant websites can be found in the tabs above.

We have set up a forum to connect experts, students and keen amateurs in the field of freshwater biology in Africa. If you would like to be part of our community please register on the forum. We welcome any freshwater news, information and/or suggestions that may not be on the website, let’s continue to build the African freshwater network together!

Scratchpads developed and conceived by (alphabetical): Ed Baker, Katherine Bouton Alice Heaton Dimitris Koureas, Laurence Livermore, Dave Roberts, Simon Rycroft, Ben Scott, Vince Smith
