Eutrophication is a classic example of a problem that requires a multi-disciplinary, multi-sectorial and multi-focal approach for its solution. Over time many surface waters have become overloaded with nutrients with dire ecological consequences. Initial attempts to tackle excessive algal growths in lakes by crude chemical treatments were superseded by strategies that began to attack what was believed to be the source of the problems: excessive phosphorus in wastewater. Today it is widely accepted that eutrophication is a highly complex phenomenon that can be averted or abated by holistic approaches. The development of a more thorough understanding of eutrophication and of practicable measures to combat it have been prime concerns in the distinguished career of Professor Lambertus Lijklema. It is thus most appropriate that to pay tribute to him on his retirement leading experts from the world of eutrophication research should gather to review our knowledge of all aspects of the phenomenon. The 27 papers selected for these proceedings examine the science of the processes involved and of the whole system, the ecological effects, modelling studies, and the policies and management measures that are being successfully applied. These proceedings will be an exceedingly valuable publication for all those engaged with the problem of eutrophication.
