Effective lake management requires a comprehensive knowledge of of the existing habitat and regular tracking of changes. Surveys are vital for determining broad changes to native plant species composition and detecting nuisance species.
Depending on the requirements we can perform one of two types of surveys, an AVAS survey or a Point Intercept survey.
Collecting plant data of this type allows us to statistically compare species distribution by season and by year. The results help us to evaluate the effects of watershed, river and lake management activities on the aquatic plant community and to develop potential plant management activities.
