Clear Lake, flora, macrophytes, aquatic plants, species composition
A survey in July and August 1981 showed aquatic vascular plants in Clear Lake, Iowa, were concentrated in nine major vegetation beds covering a total of 22.6 hectares. Of 24 plant species identified, five were reported for the first time from this lake. The dominant taxa were softstem bulrush, Scirpus validus, and hybrid cattail, Typha glauca. Maps showing plant distributions and depth contours for the nine vegetation beds are presented. The 1981 community was characterized by emergent plants tolerant of high turbidity.
