During the past 50 years, the number and area of lakes have declined in several regions in boreal forests. However, there has been substantial finer-scale heterogeneity; some lakes decreased in area, some showed no trend, and others increased. The objective of this study was to identify the primary mechanisms underlying heterogeneous trends in closed-basin lake area. Eight lake characteristics (dO, electrical conductivity, surface : volume index, bank slope, floating mat width, peat depth, thaw… CONTINUE READING
