Canada is a land of lakes!

The Canadian landscape has an abundance of lakes under pressure from multiple stressors. A long-term perspective is needed to understand implications for lake ecosystem functioning, but direct observational monitoring records are rarely available for this purpose. We use lake sediment cores (the field of paleolimnology) to indirectly infer past environmental conditions and trajectories of lake ecosystem change, with a geographical focus in southern Ontario and the Northwest Territories.
