Zoologische Verhandelingen ()


The imminent realization of the so-called "Brokopondo Project", first put forward in 1950, and involving the establishment of a barrage and hydro- electric plant in the Surinam River at Afobaka, eventually induced members of the Stichting Natuurwetenschappelijke Studiekring voor Suriname en de Nederlandse Antillen (Foundation for Scientific Research in Surinam and the Netherlands Antilles) to initiate a Biological Brokopondo Research Pro- ject. The basic subjects were to be the establishment of the various original biological aspects of the threatened area, and of the changes brought about by the development of an almost stagnant inland lake expected to finally cover at least 1300 square kilometres.
