Abstract: Although the impact of nutrient pressures on biological quality is relatively well understood for lakes in qualitative terms, there has been very limited development of quantitative dose-response relationships, classification tools or models. This literature review identified a number of widely-recognised strong relationships between physico-chemical measures of eutrophication and associated biological responses. These can be split into two types of relationships: (1) primary responses (phytoplankton, phytobenthos and macrophytes) to nutrient state, and (2), secondary responses to primary production or production-related decreases in transparency and oxygen. The advantages and disadvantages associated with developing these elements as indicators of eutrophication pressures are briefly summarised below.
