For more than 60 years, the Cornell Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point has addressed issues of changing ecosystems within the lakes of New York State and beyond. We continue to collaborate with groups to explore the effects of invasive species and climate change, and the effects on aquatic ecosystems.
Six decades of research on Oneida Lake, New York State’s largest interior lake, has been explored in the new book, Oneida Lake: Long-term Dynamics of a Managed Ecosystem and Its Fishery, published by the American Fisheries Society (AFS).
Unique to this book is the long-term ecosystem study, begun by John Forney, which has become a model for other fresh water lakes around the world. Also unique is the continuous long-term collaboration and support of the New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
