Abstract

Michigan, which modestly advertises itself as the "Water Wonderland," does have an exceptional richness and diversity of aquatic plants in its numerous rivers, lakes, and streams. Among the pondweeds, for example, we have in this state 31 of the 37 species of Potamogeton recognized in Gray's Manual, and 5 of the 6 species of Naias, plus the related Ruppia and Zannichellia.
