A chapter written by Ecohydrology Research Group members Helen Powley and Philippe Van Cappellen and their colleague Michael Krom, from the University of Haifa and University of Leeds, reviews the unique biogeochemistry of the Mediterranean Sea. In particular, the authors address why the Mediterranean Sea, a nearly entirely landlocked marine basin, has remained oligotrophic despite large anthropogenic inputs of the nutrient elements phosphorus and nitrogen. The chapter is one of 17 chapters of a book dealing with the environment, society, and culture of the Mediterranean in their multiple and unique interconnections over the millennia.
