Abstract

This is the final report to Natural England on the project “Palaeolimnological evidence for eutrophication in Malham Tarn (SSSI), North Yorkshire”. The aim is to seek palaeolimnological evidence for eutrophication in Malham Tarn both to complement and cross-validate contemporary and other historical evidence for such at the site, as well as to establish whether eutrophication-related changes in the aquatic macrophyte community occurred before the invasion of Elodea canadensis in 1962. Palaeolimnology is also used to assess whether there is evidence for eutrophication extending back to the 18th century as has been suggested (Pentecost, 1998; Bradley, 2007), and to aid in describing the unimpacted state of Malham Tarn and the setting of conservation targets.
