The labyrinth of nutrient cycles and buffers in wetlands: results based on research in the Camargue (southern France)

  title={The labyrinth of nutrient cycles and buffers in wetlands: results based on research in the Camargue (southern France)},
  author={Han L. Golterman},
Wetlands, especially in the Mediterranean area, are subject to severe eutrophication. This may upset the equilibrium between phytoplankton production in undesirable quantities and a quantitatively desirable macrophyte production. In order to manage this equilibrium, a quantitative knowledge of nutrient input and fluxes is essential and the role of sediments in these processes must be understood. This knowledge can be useful even for agriculture, e.g. rice cultivation, where optimal utilization… CONTINUE READING
