The U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Great Lakes Science Center exists to meet the nation's need for scientific information for restoring, enhancing, managing, and protecting living resources and their habitats in the Great Lakes Basin ecosystem.Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Mich., the Centerhas biological stations and research vessels located throughout the Great Lakes Basin. Researchers there studyfish populations and communities, aquatic habitats, terrestrial ecology, nearshore and coastal communities, and the biological processes that occur in this complex ecosystem of the Great Lakes.
