12 3 Abstract Freshwater midges, consisting of Chiro4 nomidae, Chaoboridae and Ceratopogonidae, were 5 assessed as a biological proxy for palaeoclimate in 6 eastern Beringia. The northwest North American 7 training set consists of midge assemblages and data 8 for 17 environmental variables collected from 145 9 lakes in Alaska, British Columbia, Yukon, Northwest 10 Territories, and the Canadian Arctic Islands. Canon11 ical correspondence analyses (CCA) revealed that 12 mean July air temperature… CONTINUE READING
