    Their heart rates remained lower in the pond waters and in the fertilizer tests than in the control water. Finally, the reflex was only altered in the urea-exposed Daphnia after the growth had formed. This could mean that the brain effects and the growth are directly related. I haven‘t found what this growth is. Introduction. Forest fertilisation with N generally increases stem volume growth in boreal forests on mineral soil (Binkley and Högberg ).Nitrogen concentrations and leaching rates rise temporarily in association with fertiliser application (Binkley et al. ), although the major part of the fertiliser N is incorporated into the soil at standard application rates (Melin and Nômmik .

    Interactions of fertilization with other silvicultural practices such as site preparation and genetic tree improvement, and impacts of fertilization on pests, wood quality, and the environment, must be accounted for if fertilizer prescriptions are to be . In recent years, ozonation has received more attention as a method for treating water quality problems including bacterial contamination. Like chlorine, ozone is a strong oxidant that kills bacteria, but it is a much more unstable gas that must be generated on site using electricity.

Streamside forests help prevent excess sediment and nutrients from reaching the stream, protect streams from thermal pollution, correct negative aquatic effects of pesticides, and help generate food sources that promote aquatic productivity.

Much less is known, however, about effects of forest ferti-lization on water quality (Moore, ). In the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, nitrogen, general-ly in the form of urea, has been the only plant nutrient applied to forested.

Several dozen studies from around the world are now available to provide general insights on the effects of forest fertilization on water quality. Forest fertilization commonly leads to moderate increases in streamwater nutrient concentrations. The greatest increases come from the following: 1.

vide insights on the effects of forest fertilization on water quality. Forest fertilization can lead to modest increases in streamwater nutrient concentrations. The greatest increases come from 1) direct application of fertilizer to streams, 2) use of NO 3-forms of fertilizer, and 3) the application of high rates or repeated doses.

The possibility of negative effects on stream-water quality from runoff of fertilizer nitrogen has long been recognized (Cole and Gessel, ). For-est fertilizer losses to streams and their effects on water quality have been studied often (Fredriksen et al., ; Moore, ; Bisson et al., ; Bin-kley and Brown, a; Binkley et al., ).

Fertilization with phosphate can lead to increased peak concentrations of>1 (mg P)/l, but annual averages remain effects of forest fertilization on the composition or productivity of stream communities, but more detailed studies may be warranted (especially in relation to P fertilization).

Forest fertilization ( kg urea∙ha−1) on the Mohun drainage, northern Vancouver Island, during late fall resulted in a combined increase in urea.

The effect of aerial application of urea fertilizer on stream water quality Author: Forest Research Subject (Archived) Research Information Note Created Date. The study consisted of two phases: Phase 1 was a literature synthesis of information available on the effects of forest management practices on stream hydrology, erosion and sedimentation, riparian habitat alteration, chemical addition, and change.

With 80 percent of the freshwater resources in the United States originating in forests, having healthy forests is critical to having clean water. The quality of water draining from forested watersheds is typically the highest in the country. Forests absorb rainfall, refill aquifers, slow and filter stormwater runoff, reduce floods, and provide habitat for fish and wildlife.

high concentrations of stream-water NN tend to occur with repeated fertilization, use of ammonium nitrate (rather than urea), and fertilization of N-saturated hardwood forest.

Ammonium-N (NH4-N) concentrations may also show large peaks following fertilization (up to 15 mg NIL, but annual averages remain. concerns rela ted to urea fertilization and forested streams have centered on drinking water quality and the effects on fish populations of increased nitrogen concentra- tions (Norris et al.

Monitoring studies in connection with fertilizer ap- plicaäons began in the late s and continued into the s (Moore a). The forest practice rules recognize that chemicals including, fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, are valuable management tools in controlling unwanted vegetation and forest pests.

There are restrictions to where and how these chemicals are applied to protect water quality and other natural resources on forestland. Key elements. United States Department of Agriculture Effects of Drought on Forests and Rangelands in the United States: A Comprehensive Science Synthesis Forest.

Binkley et al. () summarized information from studies of forest fertilization around the world and reported that in general, peak concentrations of nitrate-N (NO 3-N) in stream water increase after forest fertilization.Basically, any excess nitrate in the water is a source of fertilizer for aquatic plants and algae.

In many cases, the amount of nitrate in the water is what limits how much plants and algae can grow. If there is an excess level of nitrates, plants and algae will grow excessively. Excess plants in a body of water can create many problems.
