Abstract

This is the final report to the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Scottish Natural Heritage on the ‘Palaeoecological study of seven mesotrophic lochs’. The aim of the project was to employ multi-proxy palaeoecological methods (diatoms, Cladocera, plant macrofossils) to define reference conditions and to assess ecological changes in the seven lochs over approximately the last 100-150 years and hence to provide valuable information to assist with the development of environmental improvement plans for these sites. The study sites were Tangy Loch, Loch Nan Gad, Loch a Phuill, Loch Flemington, Monk Myre, White Loch and Monzievaird. These are all sites of high conservation interest currently or having once supported the biodiversity priority species Najas flexilis (slender naiad) or Potamogeton rutilis (Shetland pondweed).
