This volume describes the results of a biological expedition to the Coppename River, which travels through the forests of the Central Suriname Nature Reserve before entering the Atlantic Ocean. Never before surveyed in any systematic way, the Coppename River was found to be one of the most intact and pristine watersheds the biological team has ever encountered. The report documents the expedition’s biodiversity findings, including ten fish species new to science.
