In the concluding consultation of the symposium "Acid Deposition, a problem for Europe" held in Karlsruhe in September 1983, Dr. GINJAAR, the previous Minister of well-being and Environmental defense of the Netherlands, emphasized the necessity for constructing a concerted examine programme together with the consequences of pollution on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The Council of Ministers of the eu group in 1984 followed a revision of the third group Programme on setting comprising agreement examine and concerted motion within the box of the consequences of pollution in eco platforms. those examine components have been additionally brought within the 4th R-D group Programme on setting, followed through the Council of Ministers in 1986 and are topic back to agreement examine and concerted motion. The fee of the eu group is particularly involved to extend the effectiveness of researcn initiatives conducted in the nationwide programmes, and people undertaken on the neighborhood point. The fee has a tendency to boost an built-in medical process, together with not just the physico-chemical behaviour, the delivery and the deposition of airborne pollution but in addition the consequences of those pollution, particularly on dwelling organisms and ecosystems. with reference to the categorical factor of the results, the fee is making an attempt to strengthen and develop a multi-disciplinary technique associating biologists, pathologists, eco physiologists, and experts of soil sciences, in the concerted motion, in addition to inside coordinated study projects.

Je souhaiterais, d'ailleurs, que la Communaute Europeenne envisage de mener des actions dans ce domaine des sources fixes d'hydrocarbures. CONCLUSION Ces actions de reduction des pollutions, pour etre indispensables, n'en seront pas moins longtemps insuffisantes. Tant qu'il y aura des pollutions, c'est-A-dire tant qu'il y aura des activites humaines, nous devrons continuer A en surveiller les effets. Nos efforts permettent cependant aujourd'hui d'affirmer qu'en Europe une demarche tout A fait positive est en cours.
COWLING Associate Dean for Research School of Forest Resources North Carolina State University Raleigh, North Carolina 27695 USA Summary Human activities of many sorts are changing the chemical climate of the earth. Some of these changes are known to increase the productivity of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems; but others induce stresses that change the current condition of specific plants, animals, and microorganisms or alter the health, productivity, genetic structure, and/or the geographic distribution of whole ecosystems.
