Abstract

This chapter describes how phosphorus is used in biological molecules, structures, and physiology. It illustrates the role of phosphorus as a limiting nutrient for the production and growth for organisms and ecosystems. It also explains how phosphorus cycles in natural and agricultural ecosystems cause aquatic eutrophication of downstream surface waters.
