Propagation and Establishment of Native Aquatic Plants in Reservoirs

Description: This documnet "presents an approach for accelerating community succession using native aquatic plant fonder colonies. By ensuring that propagules, such as seed or plant fragments, are present in sufficient numbers when conditions are suitable for natural establishment, the time required for vegetative colonization to occur is shortened...Recommendations for production of suitable propagules include their growth requirements, operation of production facilities, and selection of different propagule types by species. Recommendations for establishment of these propagules in reservoir ecosystems include site selection, season of establishment, planting techniques, defining individual phases of an establishment project and monitoring and adaptive management after species are introduced."
