Description

This chapter is a review and synthesis of research conducted at Luquillo Experimental Forest (LEF) on stream nutrients and biological responses. It is intended to inform national and regional water quality regulatory agencies, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources, about existing results of relevant scientific studies that are available at LEF, and to identify future field and synthetic research of potential use to regulatory agencies that might be conducted at LEF.
