Entry for:150 Years of Discovery: Emerging Research
1. Please provide a brief summary of your video and research.
Agriculture is one the most prolific human impacts on freshwater ecosystems around the world. Despite this, we understand little about how it acts to degrade ecosystem health over long-time frames, which are relevant to lake ecosystem processes. By combining the benefits of both paleolimnology and contemporary ecology, I hope to help us better understand the mechanisms behind lake ecosystem response to agricultural impacts. This will enable us to better manage current impacts and prepare for future change.
