Hi everyone!

Here is a paper that has a nice summary of different ordination methods and how they’re used. It touches on CCA and RDA. It’s pretty math-y but we won’t be going into that much detail, especially since not everyone will be using these stats in their field.

Water Levels and Climate Change

Generally, my topic is about water levels in inland lakes in Ontario and how they change during periods of climate change. I’ll be looking at lakes in the boreal zone in Canada and extending the concept to Europe, and possibly the Great Lakes. I’m still hashing out the details but I think I’ll be looking at abiotic factors in hydrology in the first chapter, then looking at how the changes I identify will affect productivity, water quality, and fish diversity in the second chapter.
