SPILKI, FR.  y  TUNDISI, JG. Priority targets for environmental research in the Sinos River basin. Braz. J. Biol. [online]. 2010, vol.70, n.4, suppl., pp.1245-1247. ISSN 1519-6984.

The Sinos River Basin is often mentioned as a highly degraded watershed. A series of impacts on water quality, soil and air has been reported in this environment on a recurring basis over the years. This situation of environmental degradation has its origins in a process of huge economic development uncoupled from environmental conservation concerns. The intense consequent urbanization observed for the municipalities within the watershed was not preceded by urban planning proper zoning. The time has arrived for initiatives in scientific research in the Sinos River basin that are applicable to a more efficient and integrated management and recovery of the basin. In this article, a set of targets for research is suggested which the authors consider as the main priorities for the next few years, aiming for better knowledge and better management of the watershed. Some are still in course, while others have to be initiated as soon as possible.

Palabras clave : Sinos River basin; research priorities; sustainable development.
