At the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) field station, a number of lakes and watersheds have been set aside for the purpose of whole-lake manipulation studies. This facility, in existence since 1968, offers scientists and biologists a unique opportunity to do experimental research in nature instead of inside the laboratory. Entire small lakes are available to test hypotheses about freshwater ecosystems. With permanent buildings housing modern labs, living facilities and support services, the science community is able to move into residence for a field season with the potential to work on site year round.
