Flathead Lake

Ellis, Bonnie

Research Assistant Professor
Flathead Lake Biological Station
The University of Montana

I am a limnologist with interests in both lake and stream ecosystems. I am most interested in understanding the physical, biological and chemical factors that control the distribution and abundance of biota. The focus of my Flathead Lake research is on understanding those factors controlling the production of algae. Of the 300 largest lakes in the world, Flathead Lake is one of the most pristine.
