Abstract

Aquatic vegetation is nearby always markedly zoned with up to 8 zones (sensu Sjors 1971). Only in a few cases the macrophyte composition changes more or less continuously. In the latter case it is rather difficult to classify the lakes on a plant community basis including all life-forms, notably helophytes (graminids + herbs), nymphaeids, elodeids, isoetids and lemnids.
