18 Developing policies to address lake eutrophication requires an understanding of the 19 relative contribution of different nutrient sources and of how lake and catchment 20 characteristics interact to mediate the source-receptor pathway. We analysed total nitrogen 21 (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) data for 101 New Zealand lakes and related these to land 22 use and edaphic sources of P. We then analysed a sub-sample of lakes in agricultural 23 catchments to investigate how lake and catchment… CONTINUE READING
