Limnology - The scientific study of the life and phenomena of fresh water, especially lakes and ponds
Yes, limnology is essentially freshwater ecology. Historically, it centered on lakes, but presently it encompasses any kind of freshwater habitat (i.e. marshes, streams, lakes, etc.). My particular study focuses on some truly nasty, dirty, stinky reservoirs about 35 miles north of Kansas City.
Saw this post and thought why not...
I'm 27 and as of 2 weeks ago..unemployed. : (
(now I have more time for my music/reading/guitar/plant hobbies--but need to find work soon!)
Doh! (by me) No links to Anatomy after all...
Doh! (for you) Stinky, dirty reservoirs...
What job do you hope to do with the Masters when you have finished it Sarracenia? Or are you already in currently related employment?
Is anyone else studying anything interesting?
Sarracenia, does your work in limnology bring you in contact with CPs? Do they have anything to do with one another? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
As for us having 3 age groups...
young whippersnappers - Disposable Income
25-30 - Disposable Income
40+ Disposable Income
between whippersnapper and 25 - Paying for college
Between 30 and 40 - Payin for Kids.
I don't come into contact with any CP's. Unfortunately, Missouri doesn't have much in the way of naturally growing CP's. I saw some Utricularia once in a pond, and I think that's the only genus native here.
I guess a limnologist could potentially work with CP's (that would be my dream job), if one were to be working on some water quality research in areas where CP's grow.
Im 13, woo hoo!!!! woo hooo! woo hoo. woo whooo.... Well, that wears out quick!

About that 40+ and disposable income, kids in college and high school, they dispose of my income for me before I even realize I have it.
