Need an identification guide to water plants?

From bogbean to bulrush, from water soldier to yellow flag, the FSC Water Plants Identification Chart includes 54 species of plants found at ponds, lakes, canals and slow-flowing streams and rivers.

Beautiful colour paintings of each plant are grouped by position: submerged plants, floating plants,  emergents and marginal plants. This chart is suitable for fieldwork investigations into a hydrosere.

Text on the reverse side looks at the role of water quality and nutrient status in the distribution of plants. Advice is given on the importance of plants in garden ponds and on how to manage them. The ecological process of succession is described and illustrated.
