The Aquatic Ecosystems Analysis laboratory conducts limnological studies related to the restoration or conservation of aquatic ecosystems. We recognize that science is critical in developing long-term and sustainable public policy. We work closely with local, state, federal, tribal, and non-profit organizations to assist them in creating management strategies for their projects. These projects include the recovery of native species, management of invasive species, understanding the impacts of land use change (mining, urbanization, etc) and eutrophication on aquatic ecosystem health. We also assist in the development of natural resource management and conservation plans for the largest, freshwater fishes of the world.
We are committed to working on projects that assist agencies & nongovernmental organizations in conserving and restoring aquatic ecosystems or improving basic knowledge in the field of limnology. Many of our projects focus on local, regional, or international issues.

The Aquatic Ecosystems Laboratory is located on the main campus of the University of Nevada-Reno in the Department of Biology. Come talk to us about limnology or whatever aquatic is on your mind!
