Aquatic and Wetland Plant Forum
This site is intended as a forum for discussion of current ideas and
problems relating to the ecology, conservation, identification, taxonomy of
and survey methods for wetland plants.
The aims are to facilitate exchange of ideas
and information and to enable those with an interest in the fields
covered to find out where the most up to date information is. It is
hoped that this site will attract queries as well as answers, i.e. that
subscribers will also be active contributors. The site is entirely free
and is open both to subscribers and non-subscribers.
The site is split into five sections:
This section consists of reviews of the international status of taxa and of management problems and solutions
A central point for exchange of ideas and information, for individuals and institutions to inform others about their work
This section deals with problems with the identification of aquatic and wetland plants and their solution
This section allows botanists working on a particular taxon to inform others about their work and feeds into the other three sections
The aim of this subsection is to compile and review information
on methods for aquatic macrophytes with a
view to preparing guidance on which methods may be
suitable to address particular data needs.
An additional page has been set up to host a bibliography. Initially I
will operate this page, if people can send full references to publications of particular relevance to an ongoing or previous
discussion, I will copy these onto the bibliography which will be available to anyone accessing the site.
If it becomes appropriate, I will add another page with an index of
institutions associated with each field of work.
The site is built around a series of E-mail lists associated with each of the sections above.
You can freely subscribe to one or more list, either by visiting the particular section,
or the subscriptions page. Whether you subscribe or not, you can review the archives for each
section from the section pages or the subscriptions page.
