This volume compiles individual papers on nitrogen deposition globally. The contributions focus on better quantification of atmospheric deposition, development and application of critical loads methodologies, look at the assessment of impacts on biodiversity, the consequences for ecosystem services, and include approaches to developing environmental policies to manage the threats of nitrogen deposition. Progress made clearly points out an obvious lack of information on impacts outside Europe and North America, and also regarding above- and below-ground fauna. The wealth of information on nitrogen effects on floral biodiversity clearly is helpful to the work under the Convention on Biological Diversity, specifically the Aichi biodiversity target 8 that aims to abate nutrient deposition detrimental to biodiversity.
