Abstract:

This report documents a study of environmental conditions and habitat quality of replicated pond ecosystems dominated by populations of exotic plants or mixed communities of native aquatic plants. Study ponds were similar in depth, size, and shape, as well as in initial water and sediment composition. The study design called for two phases, the first to evaluate developing plant communities, and the second to evaluate mature plant communities. This report details first year results of developing plant communities.
