Exposição: Mulheres na Ciência

The study of inland waters- the limnology- is filled with passionate and fascinating women, who have vastly contributed to our current understanding of those precious ecosystems. Although being more uncommon during the grassroots of limnology, the female presence in the limnology community has become increasingly important through time. Indeed, currently women represent more than half of the scientists during the training periods. However, as in many other fields, their presence decreases at high research and management positions. In this exhibition, we invite you to meet some of the most relevant female limnologists at the global and at the Iberian Peninsula level. Moreover, we provide insights on the current gender situation and trends in limnology research to have a glance at the future. Join us to this journey!
