Acidification in geologically-sensitive areas subject to appreciable acidic deposition has affected the activities of microbes, plants and animals in poorly-buffered freshwater ecosystems in Europe and N. America. Biota can be influenced directly by changes in water quality during both short acidic episodes and longer-term sustained periods of acidification: they are affected indirectly by alterations to the balance of acid-sensitive and acid-tolerant species at different trophic levels… CONTINUE READING
