The symposium was convened as a special session at the 44th conference on Great Lakes Research, International Assoc. of Great Lakes Research, which was held at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay, Wisconsin, June 10-14,2001. This book reviews the status of the major Lake Michigan ecosystem components and provides a basis for evaluating natural resource. The papers that this book comprises are invited, peer-reviewed presentations from professionals in the Great Lakes region who are recognized for their contributions to the advancement of Great Lakes science and management.
