BFS research is summarized in Annual Reports, Occasional Papers, Technical Reports and in refereed scientific journals.
- Annual reports summarize the research undertaken by faculty, staff, students, interns, and volunteers at the BFS each year
- Occasional papers are lengthy reports not appropriate to include in annual reports (i.e. Masters Theses and Lake Management Plans by Thesis Track LM Students)
- Technical Reports are studies undertaken in our role as environmental consultants and Lake Management Plans by PSM Track students.
These reports are in PDF format. To view them, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. It can be downloaded from https://get.adobe.com/reader/. Most recent reports are at the top.
