Record #186830:

Of clams and climates: what bivalves can tell us about Arctic environmental histories / Michael Carroll.

Title: Of clams and climates: what bivalves can tell us about Arctic environmental histories / Michael Carroll.
Author(s): Carroll, Michael.
Date: 2008.
In: Polar Research in Tromsø. (2008.), (2008)
Abstract: Describes use of data from bivalves living on sea bottom to provide long-term records of past environmental variations, and to improve understanding of linkages between environmental variability and ecosystem responses. Notes that clams have great potential as climatic recorders owing to sequential deposition of shell material through time as organism grows, with patterns of shell material and chemical composition providing uninterrupted records of growth histories, metabolism and environmental conditions experienced during period of deposition.
Notes:

Polar Research in Tromsø. :5-6 (2008).
