Plant Growth and Estimates of Production
The primary production of natural communities is controlled not only by the climatic and edaphic characteristics of the habitat, but also by the genome structure of the populations of local ecotypes in the range of their geographical area (McNaughton, 1966). Littoral stands of emergent macrophytes, especially reed-bed stands, present relatively simple natural communities in which the population of the ecotype is the dominant component of the community.
