'(...) In conclusion, our research reveals a series of challenges and pressure that urbanization exerts on biodiversity, both at the local and continental levels. The impact of invasive species, pathogens, and environmental changes on the health and abundance of aquatic organisms requires continuous monitoring and the development of effective protection strategies. Our results provide insight into the mechanisms occurring in nature, forming the foundation for further actions in conserving biological diversity in urban ecosystems.' commented project leader, Dr Szymon Śniegula, Professor IOP PAN.
