Impacts on aquatic ecosystems book
The impact of human activities on inland aquatic ecosystems has caused a continuous and relentless deterioration of water quality and profound changes in the hydrological, biogeochemical and biodiversity cycles. This process of deterioration has had economic and social consequences, and in some cases, permanent and irreversible alterations in lakes, rivers and reservoirs. The costs of water treatment and clean-up of lakes, rivers and reservoirs are extremely high.
