Windermere Science Project Stakeholder Meeting

IInnllaanndd wwaatteerrss,, ssppeecciieess iinnvvaassiioonn && cclliimmaattee cchhaannggee 9 October 2013 Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster LA1 4AP Climate change and expansion of non-native species are linked and increasing threats to the structure and function of inland waters. This meeting aims to discuss the lessons learnt from a recent detailed project carried out by CEH and Queen Mary University of London based on the long-term data and archives available from Windermere. Bringing together perspectives and expertise from regulators and others working in linked areas, we plan to identify the outstanding research needs to address these growing problems in the future.
