Water plants guide

From bogbean to bulrush, from water soldier to yellow flag, the FSC Water plants guide includes 54 species of plants found at ponds, lakes, canals and slow-flowing streams and rivers.

The guide features beautiful colour paintings of each species, arranged by height, including

  • Submerged plants.
  • Floating plants.
  • Emergents.
  • Marginal plants.

Text on the reverse side looks at the role of water quality and nutrient status in the distribution of plants. Also included is concise advice on the importance of plants in garden ponds and on how to manage them. The ecological process of succession is described and illustrated.

The Water plants guide is ideal for students who need a quick but reliable key as part of fieldwork on freshwater succession and zonation. The guide is suitable for GCSE and A level fieldwork investigations into a hydrosere.
