The journal article gives an introduction to the role and use of riparian vegetation buffer zones in reducing nutrients phosphorous) and suspended solids inputs into watercourses. The study consists of a long-term monitoring effort on the competence of different (in plant composition) types of buffers in retaining nutrients and suspended solids. As the tile suggests there is an emphasis on areas with a boreal climate.

Simple Tools for Assessing Water Quality and Trophic Status in Transitional Water Ecosystems
Giordani, G., Saldivar, J.M. and P. Viaroli. Ecological Indicators 9: 982-991, 2009.
This article deals with the development of an index used to assess the trophic status of transitional water bodies. The index takes into consideration different factors in order to classify aquatic ecosystems. These include causes (inorganic nutrients), key biological components (primary producers) and indicators of effects eutrophication (oxygen). The study is of relevance to Southern Europe as the index was tested and validated in a number of water bodies in the region.
