Global diversity of aquatic macrophytes in freshwater
This analysis of the numbers and distribution of vascular macrophytes showed that whilst many species have broad ranges, species diversity is highest in the Neotropics, intermediate in the Oriental, Nearctic and Afrotropics, lower in the Palearctic and Australasia, lower again in the Pacific Oceanic Islands, and lowest in the Antarctic region.

Effect of reservoir drawdown on biomass of three species of aquatic macrophytes in a large sub-tropical reservoir (Itaipu, Brazil)
The biomass and maximum depth of colonization (Zmax) of Egeria najas Planchon (submerged), and the biomass and area covered by a stand of Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms and Salvinia herzogii
Aquatic macrophyte distribution in relation to water and sediment conditions in the Itaipu Reservoir, Brazil
Although a large number of potential nuisance species were present, dense growths were restricted to shallower areas of the Itaipu Reservoir, causing localised problems, suggesting a need for continued monitoring of weed distribution and abundance, and investigation of appropriate management measures.
Response of Elodea canadensis Michx. and Myriophyllum spicatum L. to shade, cutting and competition in experimental culture
Experimental data are presented to show that although this broad categorisation of strategy is probably correct for the two species, it is possible to demonstrate significant differences in terms of response to disturbance and competition, and that Elodea is even less susceptible to such measures than Myriophyllum.
Phenology and long-term control of Heracleum mantegazzianum
The growth characteristics and reproductive capacity are described for Heracleum mantegazzianum , an invasive perennial plant that has significantly increased its geographical range in Ireland in
Changes in aquatic macrophyte communities in Loch Leven: evidence of recovery from eutrophication?
This article assesses changes in the macrophyte community of Loch Leven over a period of 100 years. Evidence is presented that shows that these changes are associated with eutrophication and with
