Lakes all around the globe are under severe pressure due to an increasing anthropogenic impact from a growing population in a more developed world. Accordingly, many lakes today are highly eutrophic and suffer from severe blooms of often toxic cyanobacteria, and may be, even more so, in the future unless strong lake management actions are taken. Recent research has further shown that global warming and subsequent change in water use will further stimulate the eutrophication process in lakes. There is therefore a growing demand for lake restoration and insight in sustainable lake management in the future. The measures to be taken, however, depend on the climate and other local conditions. This Special Issue addresses lakes restoration and management in a global climate change perspective. It brings together researchers from different parts of the world and climate zones (Denmark, Turkey, USA, Brazil, New Zealand, and Australia) describing how lakes respond to changes in nutrient loading and climate and how actions are taken to combat eutrophication in their regions. We welcome other contributions.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
