Abstract

Past and current trends in environmental change are examined in terms of their impact on biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen and sulphur at scales from the local to the global. The major issues concern fossil fuel consumption which influences all three cycles, and agriculture which affects the carbon and nitrogen cycles in particular. Anthropogenic pertubations of these cycles has given rise to some of the most important environmental issues of the 1990s, notably global climatic change, acidification and cultural eutrophication. In the light of population growth rates in the next 30 years, biogeochemical pertubations will undoubtedly intensify
