About this Book
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Coastal and Estuarine Studies, Volume 52.
Over the last 10-20 years, eutrophication has become generally acknowledged as an environmental threat for many coastal marine areas. Nevertheless, most of our knowledge of the effects of eutrophication on aquatic ecosystems is derived from limnological studies. There are fundamental differences between marine, brackish, and freshwater systems that lead to different responses to eutrophication. Therefore, the aim of this book is to provide the reader with a synthesis of our current understanding of eutrophication in coastal marine areas and the biological/ecological responses to it.
