Assessing the Role of Declining Calcium in Biological Recovery on Zooplankton in Historically Acidified Lakes
Throughout much of the 20th century, industrial emissions caused the widespread acidification of thousands of lakes in North America and Europe. Acidification has led to unprecedented damage on zooplankton communities, ...
Assessing Biological Recovery of Cladocera from Sudbury-Area Lakes Using Paleolimnology
Lakes near Sudbury, Ontario, experienced widespread acidification and metal-contamination beginning in the late-19th century. These stressors caused extreme damage to regional aquatic systems and their catchments, with ...
The Role of Dispersal During the Recovery of Acid-Damaged Zooplankton Communities
Ecologists studying acid-damaged zooplankton communities have often documented a time lag in recovery following pH increases. While previous work has provided a solid understanding of the local factors that may delay ...
