      Aquatic Plant Identification Deck. Code: UF/IFAS Publication # SM Dimensions: 3” X 4” Price: $ Identify aquatic and wetland plants of Florida’s lakes, rivers, swamps and wetlands.

Random application of herbicides without consideration of the type of nuisance plants often results in ineffective treatment and the addition of unnecessary pesticides to the environment. This book discusses three forms of aquatic plants: floating, emergent and submersed. When learning unfamiliar terms, it is often helpful to come up with Memory Cues to help you connect each word with its meaning.

      Aquatic plants. Plants with their leaves and/or stems submerged or floating in water. Key Characteristics Specialized submersed or floating leaves and tissues to withstand flooding Exceptions Some land plants can be flooded temporarily but cannot live long in water. Also, sometimes aquatic plants are stranded out of water or may be amphibious.   The book, Common Aquatic Vegetation in the Southern Great Plains, was created by Will Moseley and Steven Smith, Noble Research Institute wildlife and fisheries consultants. "We felt the need for a fundamental publication that addressed the common aquatic plants that most land managers encounter in this region," Moseley said.
