Pyramimonas gelidicola has a wide distribution in the Vestfold Hills, and
because the body and cyst scales of the species are preserved in sediments,
it has been believed to have some potential as a tool for palaeoclimatic
research. This potential will be tested in this study. Two strains of
Pyramimonas gelidicola were examined to determine the physiological
conditions that promote encystment in this species. These results were
coupled with an examination of the P. gelidicola scale concentrations in an
Ace Lake sediment core and the diatom stratigraphy of that core, in order
to determine the evolution of the lake.
