Describe ecological effects of drainage of nitrate fertilizers into rivers and streams.

  • Accumulation of nitrates in the streams (eutrophication) encourages proliferation of protists and algae on the surface of water.
  • When the algae die, bacterial decomposers use up a lot of oxygen for decomposition and reduce amount of dissolved oxygen in water
  • Reduction in amount of oxygen in water leads to death of fish and animals
  • Light penetration reduces and this lead to death of aquatic plants.
  • Bad odor and taste of water

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the nice quality writing,
    it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

    in support of his site, for the reason that here every
