Planispiral Burrows from a Recent Lacustrine Beach, Gander Lake, Newfoundland
Keywords:ichnology, lacustrine, Recent, palaeoecology, Newfoundland
AbstractSimple horizontal, planispiral burrows occur in Recent beach sediments on the south shore of Gander Lake, Newfoundland. The burrows apparently represent deposit feeding, possibly by an arthropod. This occurrence extends the known environmental range of such traces into lacustrine settings and illustrates that such behaviour is not exclusive to marine settings.
