Macrophytes and macrophytes ecology have received an extra value with the advent of, and felony requirement to enforce, the ecu Water Framework Directive. This displays the dear position that aquatic plant groups play in assessing the ecological prestige of water our bodies. major alterations within the prestige and normal abundance of those groups has been recorded within the final 3 many years, consequent on such components as worldwide warming and, more and more, at the unfold of competitive alien species. those adjustments were so much felt in these waters which are exploited for amenity and leisure pursuits.

The elevated biomass of aquatic crops in water our bodies has adversely impacted on relaxation use of those structures yet has additionally impacted on their use for agricultural, flood reduction, municipal and family reasons. The loss to nationwide economies as a result of this over the top plant biomass has been considerable and has positioned strain on water managers to improve weed keep watch over systems which are effective, environmentally delicate and low-priced. the consequences from the main updated study actions and box trials of top aquatic plant scientists and bosses in all 5 continents, aimed toward resolving those weed difficulties, has been drawn jointly during this volume.

The identify of this distinct factor, 'Macrophytes in aquatic ecosystems: from biology to management', is wide-ranging and displays the huge scope and scale of the papers awarded therein. It additional recognises the outdated paradigm: 'knowledge to accomplish administration and administration to accomplish knowledge'.
