Examines several aspects of local and global changes in nitrogen in both disturbed and undisturbed conditions, particularly noting changes that are a result of pollution from nitrogenous compounds and shifts in land use. Based primarily on studies of coniferous forests and surrounding areas in northern Europe and North America, emphasizes the natural and anthropogenic transfer of nitrogen between ecosystems, and the interaction of nitrogen with other bioelements. Concludes that the increased nitrogen concentrations from the use of fertilizers and from automobile and industrial pollution is observably damaging both plant and animal life. Annotation c.
