Pyramimonas gelidicola : its potential as a climatic indicator
thesisposted on 2023-05-27, 00:13 authored by Fulford-Smith, Serena
Pyramimonas gelidicola has a wide distribution in the Vestfold Hills, and because the body and cyst scales of the species are preserved in sediments, it has been believed to have some potential as a tool for palaeoclimatic research. This potential will be tested in this study. Two strains of Pyramimonas gelidicola were examined to determine the physiological conditions that promote encystment in this species. These results were coupled with an examination of the P. gelidicola scale concentrations in an Ace Lake sediment core and the diatom stratigraphy of that core, in order to determine the evolution of the lake.
