Welcome to UI Limnology

Limnology is the broad study of inland waters, including, physical and chemical characteristics, the biota and the interact among all three.  Research in the UI Limnology lab is focused on the examination of surface and groundwater, as well as the ecology of invertebrates that inhabit these environments.  The goal of the first two areas is to characterize and understand these environments; to recommend management strategies to improve water quality; and to examine the long-term effects of the implemented strategies. The focus of the third area is to understand the ecology of key invertebrates in aquatic ecosystems and to predict their response to changing environmental conditions. Thus, the first two research areas provide the environmental information necessary to place the biological and ecological findings in context.
