Aiken, South Carolina Domy C. Adriano Coordinating Editor Preface to Acidic Precipitation, Volume 5 (Advances in Environmental Science) Acidification research has been ongoing for several decades. It was not until the 1980s, however, that scientists began to recognize the complex­ ity of the factors causing the decline in forest growth and deterioration of fish populations in acidified lakes. The general feeling, based on correla­ tive research, was that long-range transported air pollution was the main cause. Proof, however, was difficult to obtain because of complex interac­ tions of various stress factors including natural ones.
