... Test species for the study, which was run in continuous flow and batch type respirometers, included the aquatic macrophytes Potamogeton crispus and Elodea candensis. Consumption rates were found to be dependent on temperature, state of plant maturity, and the oxygen concentration of the test water. Uptake rates were best described by the linear relationship: R = β + αC. Values of β were observed to vary from 0.21 to 0.87 mg gm-1hr-1 with corresponding values of α ranging from 0.04 to 0.09 lgm-1hr-1. Consumption rates varied from 0.2 to 2.8 mg O2 gm dry weight per hr for dissolved oxygen concentrations of 0 to 18 mg per l. A methodology is presented to estimate primary productivity in aquatic ecosystems from observations of the diurnal variation of dissolved oxygen incorporating a variable community respiration rate.
Algae-like pondweed (Potamogeton confervoides Reichenbach) was documented for the first time in Minnesota on June 25, 2008. The Minnesota population represents a western range extension of the species. A small population was discovered in a small bog lake within the Superior National Forests Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern St. Louis County. The population observed was restricted to a small area near shore, submersed in shallow (~50 cm) water, and was just beginning to flower. Associated plants included Brasenia schreberi and Utricularia sp. The pond (Figure 1) was completely surrounded by a floating mat of Graminoid Poor Fen (APn91b).. Algae-like pondweed is a perennial, aquatic plant considered endemic to North America, occurring primarily in northeastern U.S. and adjacent Canada. Although some populations reportedly contain 1,000s of plants, assorted other locations consists of only few, scattered individuals. The plant is globally ranked as G4-apparently globally secure and ...

Waterfowl utilization of sago in summer and spring was not significant however 52 percent of the tuber crop was used by waterfowl in fall ...
Non-Native. Curly-leafed pondweed is a perennial plant that is native to Europe and gets it name from the rippled or wavy nature of its submerged leaves. The leaves are alternate, oblong 3/4 to 4 inches long and 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide. Mature leaves are toothed with a distinct midrib with paired parallel lateral veins, nearly translucent. Stems are flattened and branching. Fruits are seldom found, they reproduce from small "burr-like" vegetative structures that from a the base of some leaves. Curly-leafed pondweed can be an aggressive invader that can cover large portions of ponds.. Since fruits are not usually present on curly-leafed pondweed, it has little food value to wildlife. It is a non-native plant and should not be spread.. ...
Behaviour This species is both sedentary and nomadic (Urban et al. 1986, del Hoyo et al. 1996, Hockey et al. 2005), often making local movements (Taylor and van Perlo 1998) in response to rainfall, water levels and the availability of its favoured foods (Urban et al. 1986, del Hoyo et al. 1996, Hockey et al. 2005) (e.g. pondweed Potamogeton pectinatus) (Urban et al. 1986). The timing of the breeding season varies geographically (del Hoyo et al. 1996). The species is a solitary territorial breeder (Urban et al. 1986, del Hoyo et al. 1996) although it is occasionally observed in family groups (Hockey et al. 2005), with flocks of non-breeding individuals also occurring during the breeding season (Taylor and van Perlo 1998, Hockey et al. 2005). After breeding the species becomes more gregarious (Urban et al. 1986, del Hoyo et al. 1996), forming flocks which range in size from small groups of 10-12 individuals, to larger, loose-knit groups of 20-330 (Langrand 1990), occasionally also to large flocks ...
BLUEBERRY MOUNTAIN. Blueberry Mountain is the local name given to a high ridge near the northwest corner of the county in northern Lavant Township. The panoramic view from the hilltop is unmatched in the county. The ridge is part of a large, diverse, and undeveloped property that is home to [cliffLAND] the former Alba Wilderness School. In 2008, the property was voted "one of the Seven Wonders of the County". This area has become the first property to be protected under a conservation easement with the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy. With the agreement, this forested tract will be allowed to develop naturally and to be enjoyed by the public for the next 1000 years. Blueberry Mountain can be found on Hills of Peace Road, east of Flower Station. See Howard Cliffords website (www.cliffland.ca) for more information.. This property has been little-explored botanically, compared to many of the other areas highlighted in this section. Potamogeton spirillus (Northern Snailseed Pondweed) ...
Canadian pondweed leaf. Light micrograph of a section through a leaf from a Canadian pondweed (Elodea canadiensis) plant. The centre of the stem has a vascular system (blue) made up of a primitive axial strand that consists of the fusion of several vascular bundles but lacks xylem vessels. It doesnt need a strong vascular tissue because the water-pressure supports the stem and the epidermis is permeable to water and mineral salts. The cortex (outer layer) is made up aerenchyma tissue (red) with wide inter-cellar spaces for buoyancy and storing gases e.g. oxygen. The cells within the cortex are full of chloroplasts (red).

Once you have addressed the sources of excess nutrients in the water, I recommend you next take a look at how the water is being filtered. Aquatic plants are great natural filters. Add more marginal and submerged plants to the water, and you will help starve out the algae. Areas around the water that support bog or marsh plants not only help filter water but they give your water feature a more natural appearance.. Artificial filters* are a great help too. I use one in my small water garden and it plays a role in keeping my water garden clean. There are lots of different kinds of filters. Follow the recommendations of the manufacturer of your filter for proper maintenance and cleaning schedules. If you have a type of filter that uses media that you rinse out, rather than replace, rinse the filter media in chlorine free water (such as old pond water that youve removed during water changes) so that you dont kill the beneficial bacteria that live in the filter media.

As commercial towboats navigate inland waterways, physical forces in the form of waves and currents are generated. In confined or restricted waterways, these vessel induced forces can have a significant effect on the surrounding environment. Evaluating the impacts of navigation induced forces on the riverine environment has become a topic of serious discussion and intense debate in recent years. Technical studies related to navigation effects investigate the characteristics of the physical forces produced by moving vessels and determine the effects of these forces from both an engineering and a biological perspective. Bank stability, bed stability, sediment transport, maneuverability of the vessel through the waterway, sill heights at locks, and collisions with structures are a few of the reasons evaluation of forces is important from an engineering design perspective. Environmental concerns range from propeller jet turbulence impacts on fish larvae, wave energy on aquatic vegetation, to sediment

Myanmar (Burma) constitutes a significant component of the Indo-Myanmar biodiversity hotspot, with elements of the Indian, the Indochina, and the Sino-Japanese floristic regions, yet thus far only a few reliable sources of the countrys flora have been available. As a part of a contribution for the floristic inventory of Myanmar, since it is important in a floristic survey to obtain as much information as possible, in addition to previous two reports, here we present three more chromosome counts in the aquatic monocots of Myanmar: Limnocharis flava with 2n = 20, Sagittaria trifolia with 2n = 22 (Alismataceae), and Potamogeton distinctus × P. nodosus with 2n = 52 (Potamogetonaceae); the third one is new to science. A brief review of cytological researches in the floristic regions 45 non-hybrid aquatic monocots plus well investigated two inter-specific hybrids that are recorded in Myanmar is given, indicating that the further works with a focus on species in Myanmar that has infra-specific chromosome
The best lake resorts are those with an attractive, clear, weed-free body of water. Controlling these kinds of lake conditions is nothing like monitoring the pH and chlorine levels in a pool. Fish and other wildlife must be considered when selecting weed and algae eliminating chemicals. Let Share make your decision easy with COPPER SULFATE root killer and algaecide. A lake may be full of unwanted organisms or plant life such as green/blue-green algae, flagellates, diatoms, protozoa and potamogeton pondweeds, but with COPPER SULFATE youre assured of safely removing them. When properly applied according to the instructions, fish will flourish and remain unharmed. COPPER SULFATE is very versatile and works in settings such as sewer mains, pumping stations and drain pipes to alleviate obstructions, inhibit the growth of plant roots and eliminate fungus. For better control of unwelcomed organisms in your lake or drain pipes, your safe bet is clearly COPPER SULFATE.. ...
On leafing through a Mallorca flora for the first time, the British botanist is relieved that many of the most difficult British genera, such as Carex, Potamogeton, Juncus and Epilobium, have relatively few Mallorcan representatives. Where Mallorca makes up for this is in the Pea family, particularly among the Medicks, which are very plentiful and very hard to tell apart, in Spring at least. They are probably easier when they have some fruit on. Mallorca boasts 15 Medicago species, 17 Trifoliums, and numerous other genera of the same general appearance. Species of the pea or vetch type are also well represented with 25 in total, and there are many thorny bushes to get to grips with. According to Anthony Bonners Plants of the Balearic Islands, the Pea family is the best represented of all families in the Balearics, accounting for 11% of all species found there. I certainly had to leave more plants, actually in flower, unidentified from this family than from any other. In fact probably more ...

Natural News) Vegetation is an essential part of any aquatic ecosystem. Sick or dying underwater vegetation, typically due to pollution, indicates that the ecosystem is in trouble, which leads to degradation of water quality. On the other hand, thriving vegetation is a sign of a healthier ecosystem.. This is especially critical for the Chesapeake Bay estuary; underwater grasses provide habitat for fish and other aquatic animals, stabilize sediments, and help clarify the water. Since the 1970s, pollution and human development have decimated the population of underwater grass in the Chesapeake Bay, further degrading the water quality. States surrounding the Bay have been working together since 2010 to restore its ecosystems.. One study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences analyzed the positive impact of long-term nutrient reduction on valuable ecosystems in the estuary.. The study, led by Jonathan Lefcheck, Ph.D., formerly of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science ...
written by James Price / Published in Bay Journal April 2001. Fifty years ago the Chesapeake Bay was one of the most beautiful and productive estuaries on our planet. Water quality was good and extensive grass beds were an integral part of the Bays ecology. The aquatic vegetation provided habitat and sanctuary for many species of marine life, and was a primary source of food for wintering waterfowl. The vegetation helped stabilize the Bays bottom, improved water clarity, and increased the estuaries dissolved oxygen. Oysters were an important part of the Bay ecosystem; their reefs provided habitat for a wide variety of marine life, and they filtered a large amount of nutrients which helped improve water quality. Waterfowl, finfish, shellfish, and the blue crab were all relatively abundant throughout the Chesapeake Bay at the middle of the 20th century.. Over the past half century most of the aquatic vegetation disappeared. The waterfowl that fed primarily on the Bays underwater grasses and ...

Created lakes are an end product of phosphate mining in Florida. Beginning in 1975, Florida reclamation rules set criteria for phosphate created lakes aiming to approximate the structure of natural lakes, and emphasizing extensive littoral zones with both emergent and submersed vegetation. Lake development relative to lake age and design were examined for 22 phosphate lakes representing a 40-year age trajectory, utilizing water quality and benthic invertebrate communities from littoral and deep-water locations (Chapter 1). The relative importance of morphometry and lake age in the development of littoral plant communities was examined using multiple vegetation surveys throughout the year, in a separate investigation of 39 littoral locations from 13 lakes reflecting age and morphometry gradients (Chapter 2). The same littoral locations were used to investigate benthic community composition in relation to emergent and submersed plant habitats (depth of 0.5 m and 1.5 m respectively), water quality,
The most aquatic of Pacific newts, the rough-skinned newt is identified by its warty skin and its small eyes, with dark lower lids. It searches for its invertebrate prey both on land and in the water, and its toxic skin secretions repel most of its enemies. In the breeding season, the males skin temporarily becomes smooth and his vent swells. Unlike other western newts, the female rough-skinned lays her eggs one at a time, rather than in masses, on submerged plants or debris. The eggs hatch into aquatic larvae. ...
On June 27, organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, the National Invasive Species Eradication Activities had been started in Xincheng County, Laibin City, Guangxi Province with the beginning of the removal of Pistia Stratiotes. The theme was "eradicating alien creatures, and build a beautiful homeland." After the ceremony, the participants came to the Xincheng County and begun the eradication of Pistia stratiotes in Shilong village.. Pistia stratiote is also known as "pig grass", "lettuce", because of its shape looks like a Chinese cabbage, it is also known as "water cabbage." Pistia stratiote was imported from Brazil in the 1950s as pig feed in China to promote pig cultivation. The "Water cabbage" can grow quickly in calm freshwater lakes, reservoirs, ditches and can clog waterways affecting aquaculture, resulting in death of submerged plants, bringing harm to aquatic ecosystems. ...
Carbonate Hardness. The low dissolved solids in Darwin tap water will create unstable conditions in the water with large swings in pH caused by lack of buffering capacity in the water. Buffering capacity is also known as temporary hardness, carbonate hardness, acid binding capacity or alkalinity. We will call it carbonate hardness and it is a measurement of the carbonates and bicarbonates expressed as parts per million. We will use the term Carbonate Hardness for our purposes. It is also known as KH. Carbonate hardness manipulation will also be the way which we control pH swings.. Carbonate hardness is one of the most important water quality measurements for submerged plant growth. The tendency is for it to fall from plant take up of carbon and wet season dilution. By adding 20 grams of either Potassium bicarbonate (preferred) or Sodium bicarbonate per ton (1000 litres) the KH will go up approx 10ppm.. General Hardness. Another part of the dissolved solids in water is the two most common ...
Maize (Zea mays L.) is the third most consumed grain in the world and improving maize yield is of great importance of the world food security, especially under global climate change and more frequent severe droughts. Due to the limitation of phenotyping methods, most current studies only focused on the responses of phenotypes on certain key growth stages. Although light detection and ranging (lidar) technology showed great potential in acquiring three-dimensional (3D) vegetation information, it has been rarely used in monitoring maize phenotype dynamics at an individual plant level. In this study, we used a terrestrial laser scanner to collect lidar data at six growth stages for 20 maize varieties under drought stress. Three drought-related phenotypes, i.e., plant height, plant area index (PAI) and projected leaf area (PLA), were calculated from the lidar point clouds at the individual plant level. The results showed that terrestrial lidar data can be used to estimate plant height, PAI and PLA at an
