Abstract : Accurate maps of the aquatic plant distribution within a reservoir or riverine system are essential for an effective aquatic plant control program. However developing such maps is not an easy task., and managers have problems obtaining good estimates of total plant-infested area and identifying the number of acres affected by each aquatic plant type. Many operational and management decisions depend on these estimates including decisions that affect budget requests and contract specifications selection of priority treatment areas and control methods. and timing of chemical applications to achieve effective control. A proven and cost- effective method for surveying, mapping., inventorying and analyzing aquatic plant distributions would be highly beneficial to project managers. pg 1. JMD
