Freshwater is the essence of life and Earth’s most vital resource. Yet we are in the midst of a freshwater crisis. Freshwater ecosystems are threatened by climate change, declining fisheries, invasive species, and pollution. Addressing these emerging challenges requires cutting-edge science and investment in the next generation of limnologists and problem solvers.
The Center for Limnology is a global leader in freshwater science. We conduct research across Wisconsin and the world that endeavors to understand changes to our environment, find solutions to these important problems and help confront these challenges head on.
