Empirical Data and Models on Nutrients and Bioindicators in the Baltic Sea
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.
