about

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 LTERsite 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.

Editorial Reviews

"The book is not only an excellent summary of the innovative landscape-scale work done at North Temperate Lakes (NTL), one of the six original LTER sites, but it also provides an engaging history of the site's operations and evolving research goals. ... Exceptionally wellwritten."--Ecology
