    Abstract

    Field sampling methodology ranging from regional surveys to meristic measurements are presented for use by applied biologists faced with problems of measuring macrophyte response to environmental changes. A discussion of sampling gear recommended for use with the quadrat method is included. Treatment of plants for the purpose of identification and weight analysis is addressed, especially the problem of treating carbonate encrustations.
