Document Type: Monograph
The objectives of the Atlas and Database of Aquatic Plants Project are to develop a database of the distribution of aquatic plants in Britain and Ireland, and to prepare summaries of the data for publication. The project is funded by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, the National Rivers Authority and the NERC Institute of Terrestrial Ecology. This report consists of draft accounts of the families, genera, species and subspecies covered by the project. The habitat and reproductive biology of each species is outlined, trends in its British and Irish distribution discussed and its world distribution is summarised. Additional notes on other topics of interest are sometimes provided. The text should be read in conjunction with the distribution maps, Volume II.
