Clean Lakes Alliance invites you to join them this Thursday, May 8, 2014 in welcoming Dr. Emily Stanley, professor in the Department of Zoology and the Center for Limnology, to Yahara Lakes 101 (YL101) for her presentation on “Yahara Long Term Ecological Research: Trends & Patterns”.
The UW Center for Limnology is learning a great deal about changes in phosphorus loads to the lakes, and other trends are becoming apparent that may provide additional scientific and management challenges.
Thursday, May 8
7:30am – 9:00am
Bluephies Cafe 
on Level B of Verex Plaza
*Parking – Please see map below



7:30 – 8:00 a.m. – “Homeroom”; join us early before the presentation for coffee, pastries, fruit and conversation.

Dr. Emily Stanley will talk about the North Temperate Lakes Long-Term Ecological Research Project, including the history of this program, what  the UW Center for Limnology studies  in the Madison lakes, and some representative examples of physical, chemical, and biological changes that have been unfolding in these lakes over the past and current decades.

About Dr. Stanley:

Dr. Emily Stanley is an aquatic ecologist interested in nutrient dynamics in streams, wetlands, and lakes. She is the lead PI of the North Temperate Lakes Long Term Ecological Research program at University of Wisconsin, and has active research projects that consider large scale and long-term changes in lake water quality and carbon cycling in streams. Dr. Stanley received her B.S. degree from Yale University in 1984 and Ph.D. from Arizona State University in 1993.  She is currently a professor with a joint appointment in the Department of Zoology and the Center for Limnology and teaches courses in Limnology, Stream and River Ecology, and Introductory Biology.

We hope to see you Thursday morning!
