Long-Term Dynamics of Lakes in the Landscape: Long-Term Ecological Research on North Temperate Lakes (Long-Term Ecological Research Network Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This site-synthesis volume presents 20 years of work at the North Temperate Lakes Long-Term Research Site. It provides the definitive information base for the ecology of temperate lakes, and a general assessment of the role of lakes within their landscapes. The Wisconsin temperate lakes LTER site has had a major role in the growth of our modern limonological understanding, and this book also chronicles the history of this work. The book should be of interest to most American limonologists and a significant number of general ecologists.

Book News Annotation:

As an aquatic ecologist who led the North Temperate Lakes Long- Term Ecological Research (LTER) program at the U. of Wisconsin -Madison), Magnuson (emeritus) introduces LTER's conceptual approaches to studying lake dynamics. Contributors detail the interrelated aspects of lake water movements, position in the landscape, functioning as islands in a terrestrial sea, and long-term cycles between lakes, plus compare lakes to other ecosystems. The rest of the 14 chapters examine influences on long-term change and ways to meet the challenges of collecting data on such. The volume includes maps, Landsat images, water-level trend graphs, photos of program participants, and LTER objectives.
