    This volume brings together extended reviews and papers of new scientific research on atmospheric nitrogen deposition impacts globally. While there is a wealth of evidence on the magnitude, components and effects of nitrogen disposition on floral biodiversity in Europe and North America, there is an obvious lack of information on impacts on above- and below-ground fauna, and all impacts in. Fire suppression in most natural areas has altered ecological systems to the point that they no longer function naturally. Strategies are needed to restore fire as a natural process. The purpose of this project is to better understand how humans have altered natural disturbance regimes and to . The difference between relatively unimpaired physical habitat for aquatic life (see Figure 1) and degraded habitat (see Figure 2) can be aesthetically obvious. Deposition of iron and other metal hydroxides downstream from acidic mine drainage sources can embed and cement stream sediments. Rosenfeld J () Assessing the habitat.

The degree to which each sector of the food system affects the environment depends on a variety of natural and human-driven processes. For example, increased use of mineral fertilizers is responsible for much of the growth in productivity in U.S.

ISA NOxSOxPM Ecology () Impacts to ecosystem services from aquatic acidification: using FEGS-CS to understand the impacts of air pollution we report the activities of an expert workgroup to synthesize information on acidic deposition-induced aquatic acidification from the published literature and to link critical load exceedances.

Ocean acidification is the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth's oceans, caused by the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO 2) from the atmosphere. Seawater is slightly basic (meaning pH > 7), and ocean acidification involves a shift towards pH-neutral conditions rather than a transition to acidic conditions (pH.

A geospatial GIS-linked spreadsheet model (Nutrient Budget Model—Nova Scotia: NBM-NS) was developed for Nova Scotia to assess the long-term sustainability of forest harvest scenarios as constrained by primary nutrient inputs and outputs due to atmospheric deposition, soil weathering, and leaching.
