Managing the NitroNet - Poll
Reactive nitrogen (Nr) is responsible for several environmental threats, affecting air, land and water, and these interact closely. One of the problems is that the nitrogen cycle is very ‘leaky’: if you reduce one loss pathway, you are likely to increase the loss of another Nr form.
Minimizing overall inputs of Nr will decrease many threats simultaneously. However, humans need a certain amount of Nr for food, biomass and industrial production. In this case, better management of Nr can often come down to a question of trade-offs, for which society needs to take some difficult decisions.
