Air Pollution Affecting Europe.
A recent report states that nitrogen largely produced by human activity ("vehicle exhausts, factories, artificial fertilisers and manure from intensive farming, etc.") is threatening biodiversity in Europe. According to the report two threats produced by the excess of nitrogen are:
"It can make acidic soils too acidic to support their previous mix of species."
Since nitrogen is a fertiliser "it favours wild plants that can maximise the use of nitrogen to help them grow."
This is from a study made in Europe, mainly England, I guess the rest of the World is in a similar situation. Source: BBC News
