AbstractInvestigates site fertility, production, and chemical composition in Saururus cernuus populations. Saururus cernuus is an emergent aquatic herb that grows along the shallow margins of streams and lakes, in marshes, and in the understory of swamp forests and often produces dense stands. Plant production was greater at sites higher levels of phosphorus and increasing pH.
