Submerged macrophytes were sampled at locations in the Inner Bay of Long Point, Lake Erie, in , , and Distribution and percent abundance were compared with a similar study in and with observations of macrophytes in In comparison with the study, Chara vulgaris is still dominant over much of the Bay. by:   J.

Several studies have focused on the interactions between submerged macrophytes and other autotrophic components and the impact of the plants on the dynamics of nutrients, dissolved organic and.

  Wetlands of the Long Point area are a mix ture of palustrine and lacustrine types supporting dense and diverse stands of submersed and emer gent macrophytes (Reznicek and Catling ) in deltaic and riverine wetlands and a , ha semi-enclosed inner bay. Accelerated eutrophication due to excessive nutrient (particularly P) loadings has led to great interest in the role of submerged macrophytes in the nutritional economy of freshwater aquatic systems. Submerged macrophytes are unique among rooted aquatic vegetation because they link the sediment with overlying water. Little is known about the mechanical resistance response of submerged macrophytes to floods. An experiment was conducted to investigate the plant growth, root anchorage strength, and stem tensile properties of five submerged macrophytes under three initial water levels (, , and m) with four water level fluctuation speeds (0, 5, 15, and 25 cm d−1).

Figure 5 illustrates the common submerged plants in Long Point's Inner Bay. Figure Common Submerged Plants in Long Point's Inner Bay (Illustrations from Hotchkiss, ) The Open Water area of the Inner bay is dominated by C. vulgaris (Figure 6). This portion of the Inner Bay has predominantly sandy-loam sediments and an average depth. Submerged macrophytes comprise much of the coastal benthic community around globe and are important contributors to the carbon sink capacity of the world’s oceans (Fourqurean et al., ). Increases in CO 2 and HCO 3 − concentrations can increase seagrass production, increasing their potential as carbon sinks (Hall-Spencer et al., ). Pauls,K. and Knapton, R.
