The reality of global changes in climate conditions, particularly global warming, is known worldwide, globally expressed as both dryness and water scarcity in some geographical regions and water luxury accompanied by floods in other parts of the world. Consequently, water scarcity and overwhelming rainfall and river discharge require renovated design approaches to water level management in lakes. The management of water levels in lakes is a key operational factor tool under the circumstances of climate and, consequently, hydrological changes. Water quality protection and supply constrains are, therefore, crucial. Moreover, aquatic recreation along beaches affected by water level fluctuations, growth rates of submerged and emerged aquatic vegetation and fish reproduction capacities in the shallows are critical for the ecological services attributed to lakes. Limnologists and aquatic scientists are invited to contribute papers in the field of zoological, botanical and hydrological aspects of the impact of water level fluctuations on water quality in lakes.
