Freshwater Plant Research and Monitoring

Freshwater plant research scientists provide information to lake managers regarding the current status of aquatic habitats and effects of management activities on freshwater plant communities. Participation in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) standing teams ensures close relationship with managers to devise best management strategies for providing quality fish and wildlife habitat on major lake systems, as well as identifying pertinent research needs.
