The aquatic vascular flora and the vegetation of rivers, temporary ponds, dams and ditches of selected localities of the state of Querétaro, Mexico are studied. Several places are heavily infested with water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and Lemna spp. The highest floristic diversity was found in the temporary ponds of the region of Amealco and Huimilpan where 33 species of aquatic and subaquatic vascular plants were recorded. A total of 118 species of 65 genera and 43 families of pteridophytes, gymnosperms, and angiosperms were found, 19 of which are new state records for Querétaro.

    The research work was carried out at Yuriria lagoon, in the state of Guanajuato, in order to know its vascular aquatic flora and vegetation, and to recognize the plant associations. Although the Yuriria lagoon is artificial (a dam), it presents a floristic richness which includes 47 species in...

    The influence of different macrophyte taxa or growth forms on biological and environmental variables is often analysed in one-lake studies. However, the unique combination of non-vegetational characteristics of a waterbody, i.e. its site identity, can be an influential factor in itself, shaping...

    The aim of this work was to test the hypotheses that the species composition of the vegetation of one pool in Morocco change continuously along with rainfall fluctuations, that among the vegetation can be recognized Pool species and Opportunistic species with distinct dynamics in time. We...

    The species composition and dominating species were determined in five 25-m river reaches every week or every second week during the vegetation period of three consecutive years (2006-2008). The number of species and the composition of macrophytes at each site differed from year to year. A total...

    The flora and the aquatic vegetation of lake Cuitzeo are described. The wide extension of the lake, its shallowness and its numerous springs, determine a great diversity of habitats which allow the development of different aquatic and subaquatic life forms. There is an amazing floristic richness...

    One of the principal purposes of soil bioengineering is the application of vegetation layers from a civil engineering point of view. Living plants are used to reinforce slopes and to control erosion. For a standardised implementation, it is essential to quantify the effectiveness and to assess...
