Abstract

This is the final report to Natural England on Contract No: SAE03/02/054 ‘Using novel palaeolimnological techniques to define lake conservation objectives’. The primary objective of this project is to use existing and recently developed palaeoecological techniques to define reference conditions and assess the condition of selected SSSIs in England, and thereby to assist in the setting of conservation objectives and management goals. The eight selected sites are Aqualate Mere, Hawes Water (Silverdale), Cunswick Tarn, Over Water, Sunbiggin Tarn, Malham Tarn, Semer Water and Hornsea Mere. The project is divided into four main tasks with Task 1 essentially involving the collection, processing and dating of cores from the study sites. To date only the latter has been funded and this report describes the outputs of this task.
