Society logo

The Polish Limnological Society (PLS), founded in 2001, is a non-profit scientific society and educational organization in Poland that aims to disseminate information on all aspects related to lakes, including their physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and management. As of 2021, it has over 100 active members. It co-operates with other limnological societies in Europe and organizes international meetings and workshops. Additionally, the members of the PLS are organizing scientific expeditions to explore threatened lake ecosystems, such as the Aral Sea. The PLS publishes the Limnological Review, a Scopus-indexed journal. It is one of the signatories of the World Climate Statement on how anthropogenic climate change is affecting marine and freshwater ecosystems, with a plea to avoid their further degradation and to speed up mitigation.
