Summary -- Introduction -- Nutrient inputs and water quality effects -- Getting started: a nutrient control implementation initiative (NCII) -- Allocating nutrient load reduction targets -- Monitoring the effectiveness of nutrient control actions and strategies -- Overcoming perceived obstacles to actions. The world's climate is changing, and it will continue to change throughout the 21st century and beyond. Rising temperatures, new precipitation patterns, and other changes are already affecting many aspects of human society and the natural world. In this book, the National Research Council provides a broad overview of the ecological impacts of climate change, and a series of examples of impacts of different kinds.
