Assessing Thule Inuit impacts on High Arctic lakes and ponds : a paleolimnological approach
Until recently it has been widely believed that significant anthropogenic influences on the environment began in Canada following the onset of European colonization. However, our paleolimnological data indicate that ...
Assesing biological recovery from acidification and metal contamination in urban lakes from Sudbury, Canada : a paleolimological approach
The acidification and metal contamination of freshwater resources are major environmental concerns in many areas, with Sudbury (Ontario, Canada) having been amongst the most severely impacted. Many scientific investigations ...
Assessment of Long-Term Changes in Water Quality from Halifax Region Lakes (Nova Scotia, Canada) Using Paleolimnological Techniques
The current study developed a paleolimnological approach to assess changes in diatom assemblages (class Bacillariophyceae) from present-day lake sediments in comparison to those deposited before significant human impact ...
Diatom Community Responses to Water Quality Improvements in Lakes Recovering From Acidification and Metal-Contamination Near Wawa, Ontario, Canada: a Paleolimnological Perspective
In response to sulphur dioxide emission reductions in North America and Europe, there has been a recent shift in research focus towards understanding ecosystem recovery. Evidence for reversibility in the effects of ...
Large-Scale Exogenous Forcing of Long-Term Pacific Salmon Production and Ecosystem Interactions in Western North America
Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) production strongly influences the ecosystems, cultures and economies of the Northeast Pacific. Historical variability in population sizes is complex, reflecting natural and human drivers. ...
