Thank you to our Early Career Researchers

In 2019 the journal published 8 papers by ECRs covering a wide range of topics including the application of new molecular techniques, taxonomy, and use of multi-proxy paleolimnological techniques to address issues of eutrophication, climate change and water-level variation, as well as lake evolution. The authors’ affiliations include USA, Canada, Europe and Central and South America. Congratulations to our ECRs and we welcome more submissions from our young researchers.

Enjoy free-access to these papers for a period of 8 weeks!
