WISCONSIN'S BIRGE & JUDAY, AND HASLER, LIVING WITH HISTORY
 
E. A. Birge and C. Juday, and A.D. Hasler provided us a rich legacy. These two generations of limnologists spanned 100 years from Birge's first paper in the late 1800s on zooplankton to Hasler's last publication in the late 1900s on fish migration. Birge credited Juday as the only limnologist in the country during the early 1900s. Birge and Juday and their many colleagues initiated limnological study in North America with descriptive, comparative, and processes studies on physical, chemical and biological limnology. Hasler set new directions emphasizing experimental approaches and applications to human issues with his work on limnological processes, fish orientation, and reversal of cultural eutrophication. These legacies have shaped but not constrained evolution of new directions in limnology at Wisconsin and elsewhere.
