The fee of the eu group is particularly involved to extend the effectiveness of researcn tasks performed in the nationwide programmes, and people undertaken on the neighborhood point. The fee has a tendency to improve an built-in clinical strategy, together with not just the physico-chemical behaviour, the delivery and the deposition of airborne toxins but in addition the results of those toxins, particularly on residing organisms and ecosystems. in regards to the explicit factor of the results, the fee is attempting to boost and develop a multi-disciplinary procedure associating biologists, pathologists, eco­ physiologists, and experts of soil sciences, in the concerted motion, in addition to inside coordinated study projects.

These changes could have very far-reaching effects on the health, productivity, genetic structure, and geographic distribution of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems throughout the world. 4) All living organisms are subjected to a wide variety of natural stresses during most stages of their growth and development. These stresses include several that are natural in origin -- competition with other organisms, diseases and insects, and the normal vagaries of both the physical and the chemical climate.

Au nom du gouvernement franc;ais, je vous remercie tout particulierement, Monsieur Ie Vice-President, pour Ie soutien que vous avez apporte, des son lancement en octobre 1984, a notre programme national de recherche sur Ie "deperissement des forets attribue a la pollution atmospheri que " (programme DEFORPA), soutien que vous venez de lui renouveler pour la periode 1987-1990.

In some locations, essentially all the nutrients needed to sustain some of these ecosystems are now provided from atmospheric sources. Never before in their evolutionary history have the natural and managed ecosystems of North America and Europe been "fed from above" to the extent that they are today! Under these new conditions of continuing change in the chemical climate, additional pressures for further adaptation of plants, animals, and microorganisms are applied and have their influences within terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
