Overview

Is ecological knowledge relevant to environmental policy and if so, to what extent and in what way? After a series of oxygen depletion events in coastal waters in the 1980s, North Sea states acted to reduce inputs of nitrogen and phosphorus to the North Sea. The book analyzes the role of scientists and scientific information, as well as civil servants, in the formulation and implementation of these decisions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book focuses on the relevance of ecology for environmental policy by taking up the theme of marine eutrophication as an illustrative case. … The book presents an interesting account of developments in science and policy making in NW Europe and of their interacting processes. Therefore, the book makes a useful reading for both politicians and water quality managers, as it gives insight into the processes involved in interactions of science, policy making and politics." (Karel Essink, Aquatic Ecology, Vol. 40, 2006)
