For this next installment of Field Notes, Susan Knight of Trout Lake Station tells us about the tough-as-nails tiny invertebrates known as tardigrades.

Susan Knight works for the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Limnology at Trout Lake Station and collaborates closely with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. She is involved in many aspects of aquatic plants, including aquatic plant identification workshops and research on aquatic invasive plants. She is especially fond of bladderworts.
