Lake weed and the Rotorua Te Arawa Lakes then and now
Permanent link to Research Commons versionhttps://hdl.handle.net/10289/15062
This afternoon we will be looking beneath the surface of the Rotorua Te Arawa lakes at the submerged aquatic plants that grow within them – the good the bad and the ugly. We will have a look at the special native aquatic plants that occur naturally in the lakes, familiarise ourselves with the weed species that have invaded them and look at how these weeds have (and are) changed the natural condition of the lakes. We will also look at how submerged plants are being used to report on the condition of our lakes and what these plant communities can tell us about the state of the lakes yesterday and today.
