Useful links and resources

In the last decade many publishing houses have made research publications databases available electronically, and these may be searched from within the publishing houses’ web sites, or through search engines such as Google Scholar. This has made the continued development of the saline lakes bibliography redundant.

An example of a Google Scholar search, set broadly for “saline lakes” is provided below, along with a link to the Saline Lakes category of Wikipedia, a link to the Facebook page “Conservation and Management of Salt Lakes” and a link to a fledgling Wikibook on salt lake research methods.

Please consider contributing to these interactive information sharing sites, in order to progress a wider understanding of salt lake ecosystems worldwide.
