NALMS Publications

NALMS is proud to offer a variety of unique publications that emphasize the importance of lake conservation and management. Some items – such as LakeLine Magazine and The Lake and Reservoir Management Journal – require a NALMS membership, while others – such as NALMS Notes – do not.

LakeLine Magazine is a quarterly magazine published by the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS). LakeLine contains news, commentary and articles on topics affecting lakes, reservoirs and watersheds. Usually organized around a theme, like control of invasive species or resolving recreational conflicts, each issue becomes a valued resource for lake users and advocates.

The North American Lake Management Society (NALMS), in partnership with Taylor & Francis, publishes Lake and Reservoir Management (LRM). LRM issues original, previously unpublished studies relevant to lake and reservoir management. Papers address the management of lakes and reservoirs, their watersheds and tributaries, along with the limnology and ecology needed for sound management of these systems.

NALMS Notes is an electronic newsletter of NALMS published every other month. Each issue is typically 8 to 10 pages and primarily focused on NALMS news and activities. A subscription to NALMS Notes is included with all NALMS membership levels, but membership is not required to receive it and we encourage members to share it.
