Biomonitoring methods for assessing the impacts of nitrogen pollution: refinement and testing
Leith, I. D.; van Dijk, N.; Pitcairn, C. E. R.; Wolseley, P. A.; Whitfield, C. P.; Sutton, M. A.. 2005 Biomonitoring methods for assessing the impacts of nitrogen pollution: refinement and testing. Peterborough, JNCC, 230pp. (JNCC Report 386)Full text not available from this repository.
This report describes a two-part field study, which applied bioindicator methods in parallel. The use of biomonitoring methods is an approach which could provide an early warning of sites at risk from N deposition. The conservation agencies are required to identify, monitor and protect sites designated for nature conservation under UK and European legislation. The ability to determine the impacts of enhanced N concentrations and N depositions is important for assessing effects on site condition and integrity.
