A review of research on the impacts of sediment, nitrogen, and phosphorus on aquatic biota was performed to determine the influences of sediment and nutrients on biota, to suggest directions for future research, and to provide suggestions for management of freshwater systems across the United States. This report is divided into two sections. The first section provides an organization and background information to enable incorporation of large amounts of available information and allow assessment of impacts at several hierarchical levels. Included are a hierarchical scheme that is the foundation of the analytical study; a regional analysis of the concentrations of sediment, nitrogen, and phosphorus in surface waters; a review of biotic impact assessment approaches; and a review of modeling of sediment and nutrient impacts. The second reviews the impacts of sediment, nitrogen, and phosphorus on biota, integrates this information into the hierarchical scheme developed in the first section, and shows how the hierarchical scheme can be used for impact analysis.
