Eutrophication  is a natural process that gradually builds up its concentration of plant nutrients. Human activities almost always increases the amounts of nutrients.  This is because the waste products from humans contain nitrates and phosphates which are needed for growth by plants.

Eutrophication in aquatic freshwater systems

The two essential nutrients for plants to grow are nitrogen and phosphorous.  Human waste products increase the natural eutrophication of lakes because it usually contains nitrogen and phosphorous.  These waste products that contain detergent and fertilizer act like fertilizers for plant growth.  In a healthy lake the nutrients occur in small amounts but when it is in large quantities it causes eutrohpication.

Article 1: Process

     This article discussed the effects and contributions involved in the Eutrophication process. There are many nutrients added to water resulting in Eutrophication. Nitrogen phosphorus is the key nutrient added due to the increased agricultural production and human population. Eventually damage in the species composition, oxygen, and subaquatic vegetation conclude to ecosystem collapse.
