The evolution of the ecosystem of the Unitskaya Bay (Lake Onega) in the late- and postglacial times as inferred from the siliceous microalgae study
Keywords:diatoms, chrysophyte cysts, lake sediments, paleoreconstructions, Late Glacial, Holocene
The study of the siliceous microalgae (diatoms and chrysophytes) enabled reconstructing the evolution of the ecosystem of the Unitskaya Bay, the northern bay of Lake Onega. Changes in the composition of diatom assemblages, floristic diversity and abundances of siliceous microalgae indicated past productivity changes, as well as shifts in duration of hydrological and biological seasons.
