Abstract

To determine the influence of lake acidification and trace metal contamination on aquatic plant communities, a survey was conducted of 46 lakes of varying pH and metal levels in southern Ontario. The occurrence, distribution and abundance of vascular and non-vascular aquatic macrophytes in these lakes is detailed in this report. Maps are also presented showing locations of all sampling transects.
