About this book

Provides an up-to-date synthesis of the understanding of the interaction between the emission of nitrogen, its deposition and impact on the most important componants of natural and semi-natural ecosystems. The work consists of contributions from internationally renowned research scientists and deals with the factors and processes related to nitrogen deposition and soils, non-forest vegetation communities, forest ecosystems, and surface waters.
