The research aimed to assess the effect of sulphate levels on several impacts associated with excessive fertilization of lakes. The study was conducted in a remote, fishless lake in northwestern Ontario's Experimental Lakes Area. Sulphate was believed to play a key role in regulating various microbial processes in North American lakes and the differences in sulphate concentrations explained the variance among individual lakes.
