Aquatic Plant Research Lake Tides Article - What can plants tell us?

Studying aquatic plants can tell us a lot about an individual lake, and a scientific approach to observing plant communities allows us to draw conclusions about lake health, the presence and impacts of invasive species, and the effectiveness of different approaches to lake management. We believe in the power of a strong science program to support sound management decisions to fulfill the needs of multiple stakeholders while improving and maintaining Wisconsin's rich natural resources. In this Lake Tides article, DNR Science Services scientists discuss four questions about using aquatic plant data to better understand our lakes.
