Potential climate effects on nitrogen eco-toxicology of freshwater Lake, Victoria

  Lake Victoria has experienced changes that include introduction of alien species, over exploitation of fish, eutrophication and climate change. This review is a scenario of nitrogen cycle acceleration resulting in retention above the total inflow and the potential effect of climate on the N cycle. Excess nitrogen is attributed to nitrogen fixation, algal proliferation and decomposition. The nitrogen...
