Limnology is the scientific study of inland waters, including lakes, ponds, and rivers. In this day of widespread social concern over the impact of human activity on natural environments, limnology is becoming an increasingly important practical science. Private and public decisions based on the best available limnological information will be necessary if we hope to protect, manage, or restore the quality of lakes and other waters.
