This chapter studies the response of lakes near the Arctic Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) to changing environmental conditions. It presents data from an extensive series of manipulative experiments that provides insight into how lakes respond to changes in the environment. It describes experiments that include multiyear fertilization treatments conducted in large mesocosms in Toolik, whole-lake fertilizations, and a lake trout removal experiment. It discusses the glacial history of the region and outlines the physical, chemical, and biological properties of lakes. It also considers increased thermal stratification of lakes brought by changing temperature influences the diversity of biological communities and the rates of growth and other ecosystem processes of these lakes.

Keywords:   Arctic LTER, lakes, multiyear fertilization treatments, mesocosms, Toolik, thermal stratification
