The knowledge of plant and animal distributions within surface water ecosystems is a prerequisite to develop an ecological classification system based on the guidelines of the Water Framework Directive of the European Union (EU-WFD). We developed a system of typology for macrophytes of the inner coastal waters of the German Baltic Sea based on given physical and chemical descriptors of the EU-WFD, and so far known ecophysiological requirements of the plants. Analysis of these requirements led… CONTINUE READING
