Great Salt Lake Biology
Director of the Great Salt Lake Institute, Dr. Bonnie Baxter and Jaimi Butler edited and published Great Salt Lake Biology. This book includes many Westminster faculty and students as authors. This is the first book ever centered on Great Salt Lake biology. Authors explore the lake from the microbial diversity to the invertebrates and the birds who eat them. Unusual perspectives are included, including the impact of tar seeps on the lake biology and why the Great Salt Lake may help us search for life on Mars. The role of human perceptions and our effect on the biology of the lake is also considered.
