NANFA-- Oligotrophic lake plants
Sat, 28 Apr 2001 03:14:36 EDT

I started wondering, as I often do. When a lake has enough nutrients
to support vascular plant life(which would be an oligotrophic lake), what
family of plants are usually the first to take advantage of the nutrients?
I'm talking along the lines of a lake in a temperate area(ex. Michigan). Are
there too many variables to tell what kind of plant will be the first to
appear? If there is a type of plant that usually appears first in a lake,
what would it be? Thanks, I would be interested to read the responses. ___Dan
