Antoniades at the University of Toronto, Canada. Under this study, surface sediments, mosses, rock and other available habitats were studied from 91 ponds and lakes along with sediment cores from several sites. It quickly became clear that many of the diatoms observed from this study were either poorly documented or new and a taxonomic treatment of these diatoms from high latitudes in the Arctic was warranted. Detailed taxonomic studies continued at the Canadian Museum of Nature using addition SEM generated images and the extensive reference library.
