Scientific approaches and limnological education: lessons from Jaap Kalff’s career
image
In my view, Jaap Kalff’s greatest scientific achievement has little to do with the science of limnology per se. Unbeknownst to most, one of his greatest strength is the ability to foster an approach and an atmosphere within a group that brings out the best in his students and associates. In this talk, I will draw on his career to explore the characteristics that makes a highly successful supervisor.
