Trapa maximowiczii is a floating-leaved macrophyte common in China. The plant population in East Bay, Lake Taihu, has been expanding rapidly in recent years. In order to better understand the mechanisms controlling the population dynamics in this species, two outdoor experiments were conducted from 9 May to 8 July 2007, evaluating the effect on the growth of T. maximowiczii of different nutrient levels in water column and sediment. Results showed that high concentration of nutrients (nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
