Detail

This project developed and tested a tool to classify lakes in the UK using aquatic macrophyte survey data. Macrophytes are water plants that are visible to the naked eye and this classification tool will be used alongside other techniques by Environment Agency staff to determine the ecological quality of our lakes.
