December 16, 2020
 
Research from AMBER published in Nature on the 16th of December 2020, shows that European rivers are fragmented by more than one million barriers.

The study notes that large dams get most of the attention, but small barriers do most of the damage. The news story was featured not only in National Geographic but also in many prestigious journals across Europe:

In Germany alone the news was covered by over 80 online articles and 30 in the print press. In total the story was covered by over 15 countries from all continents.
