Inland waters (lakes, rivers, streams, reservoirs, wetlands and groundwaters) are some of the most threatened ecosystems on Earth. Yet they provide critical ecosystem services: providing food and freshwater, regulating climate, and detoxifying pollutants. In this course, we will examine inland waters as ecological systems that interact with their drainage basin and the atmosphere. We will also explore how physical, chemical, and biological processes operate and impact the organisms found within each ecosystem.
