Paleolimnology workshop

Institute of Ocean Sciences October 8 and 9th, 2008
Hosted by the Raincoast Conservation Foundation
Workshop of the Salmon Nutrient Research Community

View the Poster (PDF)

Leading scientists in the salmon nutrient and paleolimnology fields reviewed sediment core studies conducted in BC and Alaskan sockeye lakes. The goal of the workshop was to better understand what paleolimnological techniques can tell us about long-term changes in salmon escapements and lake ecology relative to salmon harvesting and climate change.

Become a Raincoaster

Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.

Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains. 

Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
