Canada is a land of lakes
The Canadian landscape has an abundance of lakes, both large and small, that are under pressure from multiple stressors related to urbanization, resource extraction, and climate change. A long-term perspective is needed to understand the implications of multiple stressors on 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.
