Abstract:

The survey was made in order to compare the aquatic vegetation of Viet Nam with that in certain places in CONUS which are being used to test boats and their reaction with water weeds. Since vegetation is a function of the environment a brief environmental introductory section is included pertaining to geography, soils and climate. Aquatic vegetations of two remotely distant areas within the same environmental parameters will usually show more similarities than terrestrial vegetations of the same two areas. Illustrations of thirty-six Vietnamese aquatic plants are included.
