Lakes are more than pleasant surfaces on which to paddle. They are living, breathing systems that support incredibly diverse and abundant life. Here, through pictures and simple, colorful illustrations, paddlers will share an intimate look below the surface, at the physical, chemical and biological forces that drive complex lake ecosystems, the way lakes change through the seasons, the sun's energy and the dynamics of the food web, and the niches in which fish and other lake creatures thrive.
