Brief summary of the project:

Shallow lakes contribute a surprising amount to the preservation of natural diversity, providing habitats for fish, invertebrates, waterfowl, and at the same time providing numerous natural benefits to humans. Shallow lakes contribute significantly to carbon sequestration, the cycle of matter and also to the food supply of mankind. However, due to their shallowness, these same lakes are also very sensitive to all changes, be it storms, changing precipitation, temperature or an increase in the pollution load.

Objective and results of the project:

The aim of the project is to find answers to the following questions.

- Shallow lakes are an indicator of the preservation of natural diversity. What do these indicators show us?

-How to improve scientific communication?

-How to restore and consolidate the credibility of the scientific worldview?
