Nitrogen Deposition and Natura 2000 - Book of Proceedings


Book of Proceedings of the COST729 Mid-term workshop

Nitrogen Deposition and Natura 2000
Science & practice in determining environmental impacts

This book reviews the evidence from across Europe that confirms nitrogen deposition as a major threat to European biodiversity, especially on the Natura 2000, including sensitive habitats and species listed under the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC). It documents the information presented and discussed at an international workshop on ‘Natura 2000 and Nitrogen Deposition’, held in Brussels in May 2009, to review new evidence of nitrogen impacts, develop best practices when conducting assessments, and recommend options for consideration in future policy development.
