Abstract

This chapter illustrates and explains the basic principles of sustainability. It provides a sustainability framework to existing issues in phosphorous management. It summarizes human impacts on natural phosphorus cycling and the identification of phosphorus sustainability as a "wicked problem". It describes how a sustainability perspective contributes to shaping appropriate solutions to phosphorus management. It also enumerates the general approach of every chapter in connecting various aspects of human use of phosphorous to a sustainability framework.
