Abstract:

Aquatic macrophytes of the Columbia and Snake River watersheds were observed at 723 sites in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho and classified according to adjacent land use, water body type, altitude, water temperature, and nuisance growth. The prevalence of eight weed species was subjected to matrix analysis. Nuisance weed growths were most extensive in water bodies where the surrounding land area was near a population center, was heavily grazed by livestock, or received irrigated agricultural runoff.
