Lake Sevan in Armenia is the largest freshwater lake in the Transcaucasus region and is one of the largest high-altitude freshwater lakes in Eurasia (Babayan et al., 2006). Armenia is a small (29,743 km2), land- locked country that is comparatively poor in natural resources and nearly surrounded by borders that are blockaded by its neighbors (Babayan et al., 2006; Rhoades, 2008 and references therein; CIA, 2010). Despite these obstacles, ecological research and environmental restoration efforts continue. For the most part, ecological research in Lake Sevan during the twentieth century was restricted to Soviet-era journals, or was otherwise unavailable to western scientists.
