Frank Wilhelm Published in North American Lake Management Society’s Lakeline Magazine
August 24, 2020
A limnology primer that distills volumes of textbooks into one article was published by University of Idaho’s Frank Wilhelm, professor of limnology and associate director, Center for Research on Invasive Species in the College of Natural Resources. The article, titled “Limnology – The Basics,” appears in the summer edition of the North American Lake Management Society’s Lakeline magazine. Meant for the lay reader interested in lake management and ecology, the article focuses on what Wilhelm considers the most important aspects of lake study, including formation of lakes and some of their physical, chemical and biological processes. It is meant to provide a foundation for the public interested in seminars and technical presentations.
