The manifold role of aquatic macrophytes in lake ecology is closely linked to their distribution and biomass, which in turn is a synergy of various environmental factors. The implication of different environmental variables on macrophyte speciation and life form structure in lake Hiidenvesi, with an uneven eutrophication history, was studied. The persisting life forms refl ected the somewhat inherently turbid water: emergent and fl oating-leaved species were common, whereas submerged species… CONTINUE READING
