Society for Freshwater Science Annual Meeting 2015

May 17, 2015 @ 8:00 am - May 21, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

sfsThe 21st century will be a time of choices for the world’s freshwater ecosystems. Human population and economic growth is on a path to greatly increase demands on freshwater resources, which are already unsustainably high in many parts of the world. Will we make good choices that satisfy human needs while sustaining high levels of biodiversity and ecosystem function? Or will we continue to degrade freshwater ecosystems while failing to provide adequate water to the world’s poor? How will freshwater science contribute to the search for good solutions and their implementation?

As one of the world’s leading groups of freshwater scientists, the Society for Freshwater Science has chosen “Our Freshwater Futures” as the theme for its 2015 annual meeting in Milwaukee. Plenary sessions will feature leading freshwater scientists giving their insights into the problems that freshwater ecosystems and human societies are facing, and every special session will include a talk that envisions future directions for the field covered by the special session. We invite you to join us on the shores of Lake Michigan as SFS considers the future of the world’s fresh waters.
