Aquatic * Private * Demo & Research

Dr. Lyn Gettys (University of Florida) provides attendees with the tools needed to identify many of Florida’s aquatic and wetland plants. Dr. Gettys will introduce attendees to more than 40 species of plants that are common or uncommon in Florida’s lakes, ponds and waterways. These plants are different from those discussed in the regular Aquatic Weed Control Short Course plant identification sessions and will focus on native plants that should be protected and preserved during weed control operations to maintain healthy aquatic habitats and ecosystems. Part 1 includes terminology, taxonomy, classification and descriptions of twenty wetland trees, shrubs, and marginal/littoral zone plants, along with suggested propagation methods for these species. Part 2 continues with descriptions of twenty-two marginal/littoral zone plants and rushes, plus submersed, floating and floating-leaved plants, along with suggested propagation methods for these species.
