Managing aquatic weeds can be much easier with a better knowledge of aquatic plants and a better understanding about how a pond “works”. In this presentation you will learn about the various interesting species of emergent, submerged, and floating plants, as well as information about the two forms of algae common in most ponds. Pond biology, which has a direct effect on plant growth, will be included along with various techniques of pest plant management.
