Abstract:

The purpose of this technical note is to apply point intercept and line intercept quantification methods to aquatic plant communities, statistically analyze the resulting data, and apply the data to aquatic plant management research and operations. Quantitative methods typically are not used to evaluate the success of aquatic plant management operations in fact, many research and demonstration projects fail to collect data suitable for statistical analysis.
