Hi Steve,

Regarding your question on aquatic macrophytes, I did a summer internship
with the Environmental Science division of the U.S. Corps of Engineers
Waterways Experimental Station in Vicksburg, Mississippi.  The summer I
was there I worked with the "Chemical Control Technology Team", which is
the group that studies the control of [mostly exotic] aquatic plants in
C.o.E. waterways. They publish a number of publications about their work,
and contacting them might be a good place to start. I also think there is
a research group in Univ. Florida in Gainesville working on aquatic
plants. Good luck with your work-
