Ramsar Scientific and Technical Briefing Notes
The Ramsar Scientific and Technical Briefing Notes series is prepared by the Ramsar Convention's Scientific and Technical Review Panel (STRP) in order to share relevant, credible and interesting scientific and technical information on wetlands with a broad audience. Briefing Notes are reviewed internally by STRP members and an internal editorial panel, comprised of the STRP Chair and the responsible Thematic Work Area lead or task lead, assisted by the Convention's Deputy Secretary General and Scientific and Technical Support Officer.
Briefing Notes are published by the Ramsar Convention Secretariat in English in electronic (PDF) format. When resources permit, they will be published in French and Spanish as well (the other official languages of the Ramsar Convention) and in printed form. For more information about Briefing Notes or to request information on how to correspond with their authors, please contact the Ramsar Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
