Macrophytes: Biodiversity, Role in Aquatic Ecosystems and Management Strategies


Raven Capello (Editor)

Series: Botanical Research and Practices
BISAC: SCI011000

Aquatic plants play a significant role in maintaining water quality, due to their ability of absorbing nutrients. This book aims to show the value of macrophyte use as a tool for biological water treatment of aquaculture farms and also as a culture medium for microalgae. It also discusses the translocation and monitoring of wetland plants; responses of floating macrophytes to different environmental stressors; and vegetation structure of lagoon environments as a result of sediment biogeochemical dynamics and organic matter load.
