Abstract

Local environmental conditions need be taken into account to assess the impacts of diffuse environmental pollution on ecosystems. Effects of diffuse pollution on the environment were studied at three contaminated areas in the Netherlands: the flood plains of a large lowland river (Waal), a tidal area (Biesbosch) and a peat soil area (near Vinkeveen). Diffuse pollution is present in these areas. Type and magnitudes of effects were determined and analysed
