Lakes: the mirrors of the Earth

The 15th World Lake Conference will be held on September 1-5 in Perugia. It will be bring together experts in the field of lake environments and habitats, with the underlying goal of establishing a basis or developing multidisciplinary solutions to multidisciplinary issues. In this context, EvK2-Cnr Committee will coordinate the special session 'Lakes and water resources in mountain regions'. It will provide an opportunity of dialogue among new generation of researchers to illustrate the environmental changes that occur on lakes and water resources in mountain regions and to promote mitigation strategies and new solutions to improve water quality and its use.

The environmental changes that occur at high altitudes have in fact direct and indirect impacts on water quantity and quality, on their biodiversity and on the structure and function of freshwater ecosystems in mountain regions. Moreover, high altitude freshwater ecosystems may possibly acquire increasing importance for water management in the future; since they operate as multifunctional tools in the regulation of the water balance and they may represent a secondary source of pollution to ecosystems at lower altitudes, with important implications for water quality and usage.

Abstract submission deadline for the EvK2-Cnr special session expires on March 31, 2014.
