Water Source Effect on Nutrient Limitation
Nutrient pollution affects ecosystems. It has been a problem. Nutrients in lakes, like
phosphorus and nitrogen, are beneficial to organisms that live in the water. Nutrients cause
growth of plants in water. Aquat
Nutrient availability and phytoplankton nutrient limitation across a gradient of
atmospheric nitrogen deposition
Nutrient pollution affects ecosystems. Since it has been a problem, there are many
studies that focus on nutrient availability and limitation.
