Abstract : Variations in the growth and morphology of three North American fresh-water macrophyte species, Elodea canadensis Michx., Potamogeton nodosus Poiret (P. americanus), and Vallisneria americana Michx., were investigated over broad experimental ranges of light and temperature. Response variables considered in the study included biomass production, shoot density, shoot length, and various characteristics of leaf form.
