Restoration goals for damaged freshwater habitats can bedefinedaccording to ecological as well as to chemical criteria. Fordisturbed lakes, the sediment microfossil record can be usedtoselect potential modern analogue sites as possible restorationtarget ecosystems.Fossil diatom assemblages in two acidified lakes (Round LochofGlenhead and Loch Dee) in Galloway, Scotland, were comparedfloristically with modern surface sediment samples from ca. 200lakes in Britain, Ireland, Sweden and Norway using… CONTINUE READING
