Thirteen species of the genus Myriophyllum are found in North America; ten are native, three have been introduced. A key to the species is provided and previous conflicting taxonomic treatments are assessed. The possibility of a polyploid series involving four species is considered and dismissed. Eight of the common species are found to exhibit sufficient phenotypic plasticity to account for most if not all the taxonomic problems encountered.

Evidence of hybridity in invasive watermilfoil (Myriophyllum) populations
  • M. Moody, D. Les
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
  • 2002
TLDR
Molecular data demonstrate clearly that invasive watermilfoil populations in North America have resulted from hybridization between nonindigenous and native species, and suggest that invasiveness in these aggressive aquatic weeds may be linked to heterosis maintained by vegetative propagation. Expand
Myriophyllum heterophyllum, een nieuwe invasieve waterplant
Myriophyllum heterophyllum, a new aquat- ic invasive exotic species. In the Anti-tank Ditch ('Anti- tankgracht') north-east of Antwerp a large population of Myriophyllum heterophyllum Michaux wasExpand
Systematics of the Aquatic Angiosperm Genus Myriophyllum (Haloragaceae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic results support major realignments in the subgeneric classification including a recombination for the rare monotypic genus Meziella, which was nested within Myriophyllum. Expand
The herbaceous lacustrine macrophytes of Indiana, United States of America
TLDR
The C values of aquatic macrophytes presented here bear greater similarity to those proposed by Rothrock (2004) for the State of Indiana than to those established by Swink and Wilhelm (1994) forThe Chicago region. Expand
Myriophyllum tenellum (Haloragaceae): an addition to the aquatic plant flora of Indiana
Nine years ago we began conducting floristic assessments of lakes and wetlands in Indiana to provide more current information on the distribution, status, and ecology of its aquatic plant speciesExpand
A review of the distribution and recorded natural enemies of Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum L.) in Eurasia, and the potential for classical biological control in North America.
TLDR
Research gaps identified include lack of adequate understanding of frequency, distribution and ecological differences resulting from hybridization between M. spicatum and other Myriophyllum spp. Expand
Ecology and Environmental Impact of Myriophyllum heterophyllum, an Aggressive Invader in European Waterways
The submerged evergreen aquatic plant Myriophyllum heterophyllum is among the worst invasive species in Europe, causing severe problems especially in navigation channels but also lentic systems. ThisExpand
Development of microsatellite markers in the hexaploid aquatic macrophyte, Myriophyllum spicatum (Haloragaceae)1
TLDR

TLDR
No single method of control offers the possibility of complete eradication; but the best ones include mechanical harvesting, the use of the selective herbicide 2,4-d, contact herbicides Diquat and Paraquat, rototilling and diver-operated dredges. Expand
Pollen morphology of some western Canadian Myriophyllum species in relation to taxonomy
TLDR
The pollen morphology of four species of Myriophyllum from northwestern North American populations is described from studies using bright-field, interference-contrast, and scanning electron microscopy and it is concluded that M. verticillatum should be recognized as a species clearly distinct from M. spicatum. Expand
Pollen morphology in the genus Myriophyllum (Haloragaceae)
TLDR
Myriophyllum farwellii, a species that flowers underwater, has asymmetrically arranged pores and variation in pore number, and apparently sterile grains suggest that this species is at least partly apomictic. Expand

TLDR
The three species of Myriophyllum occurring naturally in South America (M. aquaticum, M. quitense and M. mattogrossensis) are keyed and described, and the three previously described species of the 'elatinoides' complex is discussed, and it is suggested that two varieties should be recognized.

HETEROPHYLLY IN HIPPURIS, A PROBLEM IN IDENTIFICATION
TLDR
The taxonomic subdivision of genus Hippuris into species, varieties, and forms using leaf morphology as the main criterion appears questionable because there is great uniformity of foliar morphology on plants from stocks of diverse origin when grown under uniform conditions, and there is wide diversity on plants of the same stock material when growing under different environments in the laboratory.

The discovery of Myriophyllum exalbescens Fernald (Haloragaceae) in Europe and the typification of M. spicatum L. and M. verticillatum L.
TLDR
The original concept of M.spicalum appears to have included M.exalbescens (and also M. Alterniflorum DC.) but selection of Burser VII(1)79 at UPS as lectotvpe ensures the continued use of the epithet spicatum for the native Eurasian weed species to which it is customarily applied. Expand

A SEASONAL STUDY OF THE VEGETATIVE SHOOT APEX OF MYRIOPHYLLUM HETEROPHYLLUM

This work has verified many of Vochting's observations in the light of today's terminology and extends the range of seasonal shoot-apical studies on Myriophyllumn heterophyllum. Expand
The influence of substrate on the growth and morphology of Myriophyllum exalbescens and Myriophyllum spicatum.
TLDR
The two species remained distinct from one another in characteristics of leaf length, number of leaf divisions, and length of internodes near the apex of the main stem, and a marked relationship between morphology and substrate was observed. Expand
