Paleolimnological assessment of environmental changes occurring on Pim Island, Nunavut, High Arctic Canada
Despite the documented sensitivity of polar environments, long-term monitoring data are especially sparse in these regions. Diatom-based paleolimnology has contributed significantly to understanding the response of Arctic ...
A diatom-based paleolimnological study of water-quality changes related to multiple anthropogenic stressors in Lake Simcoe
Freshwater systems in Canada are affected by a multitude of environmental stressors, including cultural eutrophication, introduction of non‐native species, and climate change. Multiple stressors can interact in unpredictable ...
A diatom-based paleolimnological investigation of historical water-quality and ecological changes in the Lake of the Woods, Ontario
A two-part paleolimnological study was conducted to examine changes in historical and modern water-quality in Lake of the Woods (LoW) in response to multiple stressors, such as climate change and shoreline residential ...
Diatom Assemblages in Relation to Water-Depth Gradients in Eight Boreal Shield Lakes From Northwestern Ontario, Canada
The uncertainty surrounding the impact of future changes in climate and water resources has created renewed interest on how lakes have responded to drought in the past. There is a need to determine potential future available ...
Tracking Long-Term Holocene Climate Trends in Lake 239 (Experimental Lakes Area, NW Ontario) Using Diatoms, Pollen, and Charcoal
The boreal forest region of Canada is climatically sensitive and may be impacted by anthropogenic-induced climatic changes. The results of this multi-proxy paleolimnological study contribute detailed information on changes ...
