A U.S. study shows banning or restricting the use of lawn fertilizers containing phosphorus can help reduce such pollution in lakes and streams. Until now there has been no evidence local ordinances banning or restricting the use of lawn fertilizers helped reduce phosphorus pollution, University of Michigan Professor John Lehman said. It's one of those things where political organizations take the action because they believe it's the environmentally conscious thing to do, but there's been no...

In an effort to keep lakes and streams clean, municipalities around the country are banning or restricting the use of phosphorus-containing lawn fertilizers, which can kill fish and cause smelly algae blooms and other problems when the phosphorus washes out of the soil and into waterways.But do the ordinances really help reduce phosphorus pollution? That's been an open question until now, says John Lehman, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Michigan."It's one...

A U.S. scientist urges that equal attention be given to phosphorus and nitrogen produced by human activity that are degrading water quality and aquatic life. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Professor Hans Paerl notes the priority has historically been given to controlling phosphorus. But Paerl argues nitrogen imbalance is equally damaging and a dual nutrient strategy is necessary to manage the problem effectively. The combination of human population growth, urbanization and...

In chemistry, a phosphate is a polyatomic ion or radical consisting of one phosphorus atom and four oxygen. In the ionic form, it carries a -3 formal charge, and is denoted PO43-. In a biochemical setting, a free phosphate ion in solution is called inorganic phosphate, to distinguish it from phosphates bound in the form of ATP, or perhaps in DNA or RNA. Inorganic phosphate is generally denoted Pi. Inorganic phosphate can be formed by the reactions of ATP, or ADP, with the formation of the...
