Presenting Honeoye Lake Research

After 20 years of field research, what has been learned about Honeoye Lake?
GENEVA, N.Y.—Finger Lakes Community College Professor of Environmental Conservation and Horticulture Bruce Gilman will visit the Finger Lakes Institute at Hobart and William Smith Colleges to discuss his investigations of weedbed communities, fish populations, water quality, and the zebra mussel invasion of Honeoye Lake.

Perimeter sewering, exotic species invasions, macrophyte harvesting and altered watershed land-uses are among the many significant changes that affect the ecology of Honeoye Lake. Gilman will discuss recent trends in water quality, lake communities and human impacts at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20, at the Institute, at 601 S. Main Street, Geneva.

Gilman's limnological research has been conducted on the western Finger Lakes, especially Canandaigua Lake and Honeoye Lake. He holds a bachelor's degree from St. John Fisher College, and master's and doctoral degrees from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse.
