[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The European Diatom Database (EDDI) is a web-based information system designed to enhance the application of diatom analysis to problems of surface water acidification, eutrophication and climate change.

The original dataset included 31 ponds and pools from southeast England. They are all relatively small, shallow, lowland, artificial waterbodies. All sites have circumneutral to alkaline pH and ... View entire text
