NOTWITHSTANDING the relative uniformity of their environment, aquatic plants exhibit a remarkable variety of form and constitute a very distinct biological group comprising a considerable number of quite unrelated families. An extensive literature already exists relating to the special features of their morphology and ecology; but apart from monographs on certain genera, the group as a whole has not been analysed systematically with the view of simplifying identification. For various reasons… 
A classification of aquatic plant communities within the Nothern Rocky Mountains
TLDR
Results of this analysis indicated some relationships between species distributions and abiotic factors; however, chance introduction of plant species to water bodies is a process considered to be equally important to the presence of the community types described.
Invertebrates and Plants
TLDR
This chapter provides an introduction to sampling and study methods for freshwater macro-phytes and macroinvertebrates.
THE MONOECIOUS AND DIOECIOUS CONDITIONS IN SAGITTARIA LATIFOLIA L. (ALISMATACEAE)
  • J. W. Wooten
  • Environmental Science
    Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1971
TLDR
To determine if sex expression is genetically or environmentally controlled in plants of S. latifolia, genecological experiments conducted on dioecious and monoecious populations of plants determine plasticity of sex expression.
Utricularia minor L. (lesser bladderwort) : a technical conservation assessment
TLDR
Herbarium specimen label data were provided Stephanie L. Neid is an ecologist with the Colorado Natural Heritage Program (CNHP).
Morphological Studies of the Nymphaeaceae II. The Flower of Nymphaea
TLDR
The arrangement of the floral organs is in a transitional stage between the ancient spiral phyllotaxy and a whorled condition, although superficially the carpels and, in some species, the appendicular organs appear to be in whorls.
Mechanisms of resistance of freshwater macrophytes to herbivory by invasive juvenile common carp
TLDR
It is suggested that macrophyte–herbivore interactions play an integral part in aquatic food webs and may be as important in freshwater communities as in marine and terrestrial systems.
Urban ecosystems as locations of distribution of alien aquatic plants
Abstract Peculiarities of alien macrophytes invasions into aquatic ecosystems located at urban landscapes were investigated on an example of water bodies, rivers and streams located within the Kyiv
Search Theory, Random Motion, and the Convergent Evolution of Pollen and Spore Morphology in Aquatic Plants
  • P. Cox
  • Environmental Science
    The American Naturalist
  • 1983
TLDR
It is concluded that these trends in aquatic spore morphologies can best be explained as convergent evolution toward an efficient search vehicle.
Macrophytes of sacred Himalayan lake Dodi Tal, India: quantitative and diversity analysis
Biodiversity is one of the most important characteristics of the aquatic ecosystem for maintaining its stability and resilience.1 Aquatic macrophytes are macroscopic forms of aquatic vegetation,
INTROGRESSION BETWEEN TYPHA LATIFOLIA AND T. ANGUSTIFOLIA
TLDR
The present study would suggest that T. glauca, described as somewhat intermediate between T. latiiolia and T. angustifolia by Hotchkiss and DOZIer, is not a definite entity, but rather a series of individuals in hybrid swarms.
