American Biology Teacher, v45 n3 p144-50 Mar 1983
Physical, chemical, and biological effects on macrophytes (aquatic plants) on the freshwater ecosystem are discussed. Research questions and issues related to these organisms are also discussed, including adaptations for survival in a wet environment, ecological consequences of large-scale macrophyte eradication, seasonal changes in plant chemistry (carbon/nitrogen ratios), and others.
