Field Guide to Aquatic Plants of Alabama
R. Graves Lovell
The first step toward correct identification of an aquatic plant is to observe how it is growing in the water. Some species may exhibit different growth forms in response to their environment. Furthermore, a plant’s growth form may change during its life cycle. However, based on how the plants are most often observed at maturity, aquatic vegetation can be segregated into a few major growth forms, and that is how this book arranges the 65 taxa presented.
