Reports Outline Systematic Botany Study Findings from Natural History Museum [Late Quaternary Chrysophycean stomatocysts in a Southern Carpathian mountain lake, including the description of new forms (Romania)]

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Fresh data on Life Science Research are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Budapest, Hungary, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "In this study we present results of a low-resolution chrysophyte stomatocyst analysis that followed a high-resolution diatom analysis of a mountain lake sediment sequence from the Retezat Mountains, in the south Carpathians (Romania). The stomatocyst assemblages of the previously distinguished ten diatom assemblage zones of Lake Gales were studied with the aim to describe stomatocyst composition and create a taxonomical basis for detailed stratigraphical analysis in the future."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Natural History Museum, "We report 83 stomatocyst forms, and 7 of them are formally described here as new for science. An abrupt shift in cyst as well as diatom assemblages were recorded around 9200 cal yr BP during the 15,000 years long history of the Lake Gales."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This Lake Gales event could be linked to the 9.3-ka widespread significant climatic anomaly, which was triggered by a melt water pulse into the North Atlantic."
