In August 1976 a visit was made to Cape Breton Highlands National Park at the invitation of the Canadian Wildlife Service, to make floral and faunal inventories of some lakes being subjected to detailed limnological studies. Six lakes were visited and inventories made of the conspicuous aquatic plants and animals. Several interesting records for the Province of Nova Scotia were made. Species diversity in the lakes reflects the various levels of productivity indicated by the limnological studies, and past relationships of each lake with major drainage systems.
