Four 100 meter study sections were chosen in three Michigan streams to evaluate the influence of varying levels of eutrophication upon submerged macrophyte communities. Choice of study sites was based upon appearance of the streams and prior estimates of physical, chemical, and biological parameters. Phosphorus content within plant tissue reflected concentrations in the water. The percentage of phosphorus in tissue was high in spring, but could not be shown to change significantly during the latter part of the growing season. Nitrogen content in tissues appeared to remain at levels required to maintain constant N:P ratios rather than reflect water concentrations. (Author)
