Climate change may lead to more intense and frequent flooding. Alternanthera philoxeroides is a perennial that grows rapidly in both terrestrial and aquatic habitats. However, there is a lack of information about whether this species survive or not under flooded conditions, especially when completely submerged. In this study, the effect of submergence at depths of 0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0 m on the growth of A. philoxeroides was investigated. The results showed that submergence… CONTINUE READING
