Chapter Summary

This introduction presents an overview of the concepts discussed in this book. The book summarizes the distribution, habitat and reproductive biology of the vascular plants which grows in fresh water in Britain and Ireland. It has been made possible by the co-operation of three funding bodies, the Environment Agency (formerly the National Rivers Authority), the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee. The author hopes that it will be of use to all those with a professional or amateur interest in the aquatic plants of Britain and Ireland, and that it introduces more botanists to the study of these fascinating, but often neglected, organisms. The geographical areas covered by the book are Great Britain, Ireland and the Channel Islands. The political units are the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, the Isle of Alan and the Bailiwicks of jersey and Guernsey.
