About this book

Beneath the surface of bodies of freshwater-springs, streams, rivers, ponds and lakes-there is a world of plants of great variety and beauty, a realm that is often poorly known and understood. Correctly identified, these plants can tell us much about the character and condition of the habitats in which they live. A collaboration of Danish, German, and British field botanists specializing in freshwater plants, this guide presents all of the known aquatic plants of Northern and Central Europe (including Britain and Ireland, the Benelux, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Greenland) as well as many marginal and wetland species.

This is the first comprehensive guide to the identification of the region's 410 species and hybrids of both native and non-native ferns and flowering plants that are dependent upon freshwater wetlands. Following the latest taxonomy, the book features 358 plates in pen and ink, more than 1,400 colour photographs, illustrated keys, distribution maps and detailed descriptions. The introduction gives an overview of evolution, anatomy and morphology, ecology, eco-physiology, research traditions and more, and the book also includes guidelines for working with aquatic plants.
