The process of eutrophication is a natural one, often accelerated greatly by man's activities that contribute nutrients. The key nutrient is phosphorus. Although there is no simple relationship, it is clear that increasing phosphorus content frequently leads to accelerated eutrophication. Of all important nutrients, phosphorus is most controllable. Control efforts follow five basic directions: Limiting fertility; improving food webs; stimulating plant diseases and parasites; recycling nutrient-laden water to agricultural and forest lands; and using toxic chemicals to kill vegetation. Limitation of nutrients is the most desirable approach, particularly through curtailing phosphorus inputs. (Modified author abstracts)
