Keywords:diatoms, sediments, paleolimnological reconstruction, Arctic, anthropogenic influence
This paper provides information about diatom assemblages in sediments of large arctic reservoir (Lake Imandra). The distribution of the taxonomic composition and structure of diatoms for several centuries has been studied. The periods and causes of changes in the state of the lake ecosystem are determined, and a conclusion about future trends is made. The data obtained can be used for monitoring the ecological state of the environment and water bodies.
