Fossil of zooplankton remains, pigment and nutrients in Dagze Co, central Tibet Plateau (1440-2002 A.D.)

Paleolimnology and paleoecology provide a long-term perspective for the study of climate change and ecosystem process change. They record the direct and indirect impacts of climate change and human activities on aquatic ecosystems. Zooplankton shells and sedimentary pigments in lake sediments can reflect the changes of community structure of primary producers (photosynthetic organisms) and primary consumers in lake ecosystems. In this paper, we have reconstructed the zooplankton and phytoplankton community changes in the past 600 years using Artemia head shells, Tibetan flea eggs and sedimentary pigments from the sediments of dazechoo Lake in the central Tibetan Plateau. Total nitrogen and phosphorus were used to reconstruct the changes of nutrients in the lake in the past. The results showed that the change of phytoplankton community was mainly controlled by zooplankton community, which could provide an important theoretical reference for the future management of plateau lake ecosystem.

Data file naming and use method

File name: the data is stored in table XLS format and named "Dagze co zooplankton segments and nutrients.xls ”。 There are three sheets, namely fragments, zooplankton remains and nutrients. There are 14 fields in segments, namely age and 13 pigments; zooplankton remains contains 3 fields, namely age, and Artemia. Tibetiana (Artemia) and Daphnia. Tibetana (Daphnia tibetana). Nutrients contains three fields: age, TP and TN.
Data reading method: Microsoft Office Excel software can be used to view and edit.
