Pleistocene Gastropoda of a lake deposit, Rimouski County, Quebec, Canada

Pleistocene Gastropoda of a lake deposit, Rimouski County, Quebec, Canada

Sterkiana - Ohio State University 31(Pages 1-14

The paleoecology of Lake No. 2 was reconstructed on the basis of a qualitative and quantitative study of 15 species of gastropods. The lake was never over four feet deep, and while vegetation was fairly abundant, the water was neutral to slightly alkaline. Fluctuations in the abundance of species as well as differences in sedimentation show that the lake fluctuated. The gastropods are only in the lower sediments of the lake. No glacial material is in the sediments so that the lake is probably postglacial.
