Abstract

Lake Gårdsjön and its catchment area have been studied since the early 1970s and have, along with other lakes in the vicinity, been the target of the greatest individual Swedish effort in the field of acidification and liming research. The majority of studies in the lake itself were concluded in the early 1990s, but some still continue to a limited extent today.
