The role of major research centers in the study of inland aquatic ecosystems
Abstract
Major research centers have made substantial contributions to the basic understanding of inland aquatic ecosystems. Such centers function by providing access to important natural ecosystems and by fostering interdisciplinary investigations of a wide range of environmental phenomena. This paper provides seven representative examples of aquatic research centers and summarizes their contributions.
