Acid deposition from the atmosphere has caused the acidification of a number of streams, rivers and lakes in both moorland and forested catchments within susceptible areas of Britain. The increased acidification has affected fresh-water flora and fauna, causing the decline, and in some instances the complete loss, of fish populations. Current debate centres upon whether the presence of forests has made the situation significantly worse than it otherwise would have been. This report suggests that evidence to date is incomplete, making previous commentary premature. It affirms that definitive conclusions regarding the extent of any forest acidification effect can only be based on the analysis of results from various long-term studies now being carried out.
