Here we estimate the duration of the thick peat layer that characterizes the Beaver Pond site, provide a description of the sparse diatom assemblage, and consider the possible role of beaver activity in the creation of the site.
Ecological studies focusing exclusively on planktonic diatoms are few: Train (1991) assessed a floristic survey of planktonic and periphytic diatoms for potential as biological indicators of ecological conditions, and Contin (1990) also related planktonic and periphytic diatom flora to environmental indexes.
