Freshwater ecosystems, especially lakes, have long inspired human interest, passion, and investment. Understanding how lake ecosystems function in the face of global change is also a topic of intense interest for researchers and citizens alike. Using a case study from New Hampshire, this talk will illustrate some ecological puzzles for freshwater lakes in New England. It will also demonstrate how citizens, students, and scientists have formed remarkable partnerships to advance understanding of lakes around the world.
