Pre- and Post-Settlement Palynology of Southern Alberta. Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology 23:373-387.
AEU SCI QE 901 R45 Sites discussed: Twelve Mile Coulee, Chappice Lake, Lloyd's Lake, Eagle Lake, Little Fish Lake, Keiver Lake, Gooseberry Lake, Red Deer Lake, Bellshill Lake. Looked at cores from nine lakes in southern Alberta. Pre- and post- settlement levels distinguished on basis on palynology, including increases in pollen from weedy taxa and from introduced plants (such as Taraxacum officinale, dandelion).

AEU SCI S 601 A282 Sites discussed: Twelve Mile Coulee, Chappice Lake, Lloyd's Lake, Eagle Lake, Little Fish Lake, Keiver Lake, Gooseberry Lake, Red Deer Lake, Bellshill Lake. Looked at cores from nine lakes in southern Alberta. Pre- and post- settlement levels identified on basis on palynology. Examined characteristics of sediments (particle size, clastic content, carbonate content, organic content). Higher organic content in post-settlement sediments. Higher proportion of silt in post- settlement sediments, which Strong considers reflects increased amount of aeolian input (agriculture and clearance). Patterns were not identical across the area, showing influence of local effects, such as land use, around lakes.
