China's largest freshwater lake - Poyang Lake in Jiangxi province - is fast drying-up and might soon become a prairie or a desert due to drought. Chinese scientists are reporting with alarm that more parts of Poyang Lake have dried up leaving huge swathes of grassland in areas once inundated by up to 25 meters of water. That depth has been reduced on average to only eight meters and even this level is in danger since water levels have fallen continuously.
