About this book

Over the past 50 years, major changes have taken place in the distribution of aquatic plants in Europe. Many species have declined whilst other species have increased in abundance or spread, including several that were originally introduced from the New World. Despite the relative richness of the aquatic flora of Britain and Ireland, it is a neglected area of study. Aquatic Plants in Britain and Ireland is not an identification manual but provides a summary of the distribution, habitat and reproductive biology of 200 taxa in 72 genera, with individual distribution maps, and also summarizes their distribution overseas.

Aquatic Plants in Britain and Ireland is a joint project of the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology (now the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology), Monks Wood, the Joint Nature Conservation Committee and the Environment Agency.

Aquatic Plants in Britain and Ireland was originally published by Harley Books (B.H. & A. Harley Ltd), Colchester, UK, in hardback in 1997 under ISBN 0 946589 55 0 and in paperback in 2001 under ISBN 0 946589 69 0.
