The question about “limiting” nutrient is certainly central in aquatic ecology and has been treated in numerous papers and textbooks (e.g., Dillon and Rigler, 1974; Smith, 1979; Riley and Prepas, 1985; Howarth, 1988; Hecky and Kilham, 1988; Evans et al., 1996; Wetzel, 2001; Geider and La Roche, 2002; Labry et al., 2002; Newton et al., 2003; Smith et al., 2006; Håkanson and Bryhn, 2008a). Figure 4.1 illustrates key questions related to the concept of “limiting” nutrient and the nitrogen/ phosphorus dilemma.
