Journal of Limnology

The Journal of Limnology publishes peer-reviewed original papers, review papers, notes and short communications about all aspects of limnology. The scope of our Journal comprises the ecology, biology, microbiology, physics, and chemistry of freshwaters, including the impact of human activities, management and conservation. Coverage includes molecular-, organism-, community-, and ecosystem-level studies both applied and theoretical. Proceedings of workshops, specialized symposia, conferences, may also be accepted for publication.


The special supplement "Limnology in the 21st Century: celebrating 75 years of ecological research in Pallanza" is available at:
