Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This first volume in the Developments in Paleoenvironmental Research series deals with the acquisition and archiving of lake sediment cores, chronological techniques, and large-scale basin analysis methods used in paleolimnology. Other volumes deal with physical and geochemical parameters and methods (Volume 2), biological techniques (Volumes 3 and 4), and statistical and data handling methods (Volume 5). These monographs provide sufficient detail and breadth to be useful handbooks for both seasoned practitioners as well as newcomers to the area of paleolimnology. Although the chapters in these volumes target mainly lacustrine settings, many of the techniques described can also be readily applied to fluvial, glacial, marine, estuarine, and peatland environments.

About the Author

William M. Last is a professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at University of Manitoba (Canada) and is co-editor of the Journal of Paleolimnology. John P. Smol is a professor in the Biology Department at Queen's University (Canada), with a cross-appointment at the School of Environmental Studies. He co-directs the Paleoecological Environmental Assessment and Research Lab (PEARL). Professor Smol is co-editor of the Journal of Paleolimnology and holds the Canada Research Chair in Environmental Change.
