 About the Book 

The remote mountain loch of Lochnagar is one of the most studied freshwater bodies in Europe. It is an area of outstanding, although harsh, natural beauty, a favourite destination for hill-walkers, and a rare UK habitat for many alpine species. ThisMoreThe remote mountain loch of Lochnagar is one of the most studied freshwater bodies in Europe. It is an area of outstanding, although harsh, natural beauty, a favourite destination for hill-walkers, and a rare UK habitat for many alpine species. This book brings together knowledge gained over two decades of multi-disciplinary scientific study, with the results of lake sediment research covering millennia, to show how the loch has developed both naturally and as a result of human impact. Particular emphasis is placed on how this fragile ecosystem, and others like it, may be affected by future climate change.
