274. Aquatic macrophytes in the Rhine 2018/2019

Aquatic macrophytes (aquatic plants) may be used to assess the substance pollution of rivers, but they also reflect interferences with the discharge regime and structural conditions in water bodies. Within the measurement programme 2018/2019, 49 sampling stations were analysed, where 44 aquatic marcophyte species were determined: 27 higher plants, 13 mosses and 4 stoneworts.
