In wetlands, many invasive plants, especially submerged macrophytes, are propagated by vegetative fragments. Fragment colonization and growth, the first step of plant invasion, strongly depend on the species and environment. In this study, the influences of water depth and sediment type on fragment growth performance of Myriophyllum spicatum were evaluated in an outdoor experiment. The experiment consisted of two sediment types (mud and sand) and three water depths (20, 40, and 60 cm), with two… CONTINUE READING
