Ramadan, Abu-Zied Ostracods and the Holocene palaeolimnology
of Lake Qarun, with special reference to past human-environment interactions in the Faiyum (Egypt)
Research on the composition of benthic macroinvertebrate populations, especially those of dipteran larvae and micro-crustaceans, has long been used as an investigative tool in Palaeoecology and Palaeolimnology
, since micro-fossil remains such as the head capsules of the larvae are preserved in the sediment and can be used as indicators of past climatic and lake physical and chemical conditions (Walker, 1987; Prat and Rieradevall, 1995; Massaferro et al., 2005; Verschuren and Eggermont, 2006).
An essential issue in palaeolimnology
is understanding the key events in the history of lake ecosystems and, on this basis, generating ideas for lake restoration.

The occurrence of a number of distinct climatic oscillations in Europe and their impact on lake levels has been widely studied in palaeolimnology
(Digerfeldt 1986; Almquist-Jacobson 1995; Yu & Harrison 1995; Dearing 1997; Magny et al.
