What is eutrophication?



  1. 0 Votes

    Eutrophication occurs if there is a build-up of nutrients (like nitrogen) in an ecosystem resulting in a boom in primary productivity (like algae growth) which in turn causes a reduction in oxygen available. Dead zones are caused by eutrophication.

    Eutrophication is an increase in chemical nutrient concentations in eco-systems to such an extent that it increases the productivity level of that eco-system. Too much eutrophication can have adverse effects such as a decrease in biodiversity and too much toxicity.
