The term 'eutrophication' is used here to refer to the increased input or availability of plant nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus. It is primarily the biological effects of the increased supply of nutrients that lead to noticeable changes and problems. These effects are therefore often included in the concept of eutrophication. We distinguish however between eutrophication and its biological effects and can therefore apply the term to media in which direct biological effects are lacking, such as atmosphere and groundwater. This report is based on 5 background reports and follows the plant nutrients via the atmosphere, natural terrestrial ecosystems, agricultural systems, groundwater, watercourses/lakes and sea/coast. 195 refs, 62 figs, 21 tabs
