To explore the mechanism of eutrophication what dilemma do scientists scramble with as it is well documented that eutrophication/nutrient enrichment triggers Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and deteriorates water quality?

  1. To explore the mechanism of eutrophication what dilemma do scientists scramble with as it is well documented that eutrophication/nutrient enrichment triggers Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and deteriorates water quality?
  2. To suggest solutions for overcoming challenges (possible consequences of eutrophication). Solutions can involve individual actions, economic or political strategies.

# Guidelines:Read the two articles from the links below, one from Environment Education Victoria and the other a release from a Nature Education-Knowledge Project that relate the dead zones mediated by eutrophication to indiscriminate use of insecticides, pesticides, and fertilizers. # Answer the following two questions-Thoroughly justify your answer by examining both your position and the opposing viewpoint:

  1. How do changes in the ecosystem due to nutrient enrichment impact the health and wellbeing of species, including Homo sapiens?
  2. How can advances in scientific understanding of eutrophication be applied to manage and mitigate the effects of multiple anthropogenic pressures?
