Recent Acidification and Changes in the Subfossil Chrysophyte Flora of Lakes in Sweden, Norway and Scotland
The subfossil chrysophyte flora was investigated in sediment cores from eight lakes in Scotland and Scandinavia. In the Scottish lakes, scales were rare or absent. However, Scandinavian lakes contained numerous different chrysophyte scales. In Lilla Oresjon (Sweden) and Verevatn (Norway) the changes in the subfossil chrysophyte community reflect the recent acidification of these lakes.
