Aquatic Plant Research Survey Data Entry & Statistics

Aquatic plant managers and private consultants requested a standard data entry and analysis form that provides summary statistics for aquatic plant survey data from individual lakes. To this end, Science Services researchers created a data entry spreadsheet that also calculates survey statistics. The form provides useful information on the overall plant community and returns information on plant abundance and diversity. This standardized tool allows users to rapidly summarize information and provides basic information about where plant growth is occurring. This summary helps guide management decisions by providing scientific information about the plant community. This form is currently used statewide and is available through the UW Extension Lakes Website.
