Abstract

Investigates the ability of native wetland vegetation to mitigate harmful effects of agricultural runoff, specifically pyrethoid insecticides. Experiment was conducted as a mesocosm with four common wetland macrophytes of the Mississippi Delta, including Sparganium americanum. All four species reduced levels of insecticide compared to the unplanted control.
