At Lim-Tex, we collaborate with our partners to provide a simple yet effective framework to understand the ecology of a water resource, with an emphasis on its plankton populations. By developing methods and equipment that allow us to “Teach Them How To Fish”, we encourage our partners to ask questions and inspire them to continue and expand their investigations. Most importantly, we always follow our Rules of thumb: Make things that are low-cost and easy to use, while providing reliable data, using methods that can be applied in a variety of aquatic habitats
Nancy Leland, M.S. Zoology
“By serving at the municipal level via planning/zoning boards and conservation commission, I developed an appreciation of needs by local decision makers for high quality information and access to current research. Additional years of policy development and implementation at the local, state and federal levels supported my belief that effective management of our water resources relies upon an informed and empowered citizenry. I pursued and completed my Masters in Zoology at University of New Hampshire Center for Freshwater Biology (1996-2002) focusing on seasonal cyanobacterial population dynamics. Following a hiatus, I started Lim-Tex in 2013 and have been collaborating with UNH CFB-EcoTox since that time.” – Nancy Leland, MS Zoology
“When we found Lim-Tex products and services, we were just starting to grapple with the issue of cyanobacteria and had MANY questions, unknowns and misunderstandings. Nancy made the entire learning process easy and was always available to troubleshoot problems or answer questions. With her, we've been able to establish a baseline of cyanobacteria across our water bodies and understand problem areas so we can start looking into solutions!”
"What stands out in every interaction with Nancy Leland is that she is personally and professionally invested in every aspect of her work. She has always made herself available to me to answer any question, great or small, that I might have. From the beginning to the end of every project, I have found Nancy to be approachable, supportive and involved. I look forward to working and learning from her in the future."
