This monograph, Volume 120 in the series Developments in Hydrobiology, reflects the proceedings of the 9th international symposium on aquatic weeds, held by the European Weed Research Society (EWRS) in Dublin in 1994. Contributions are presented in three chapters: ecology, distribution and management of freshwater plants. The part on distribution deals mainly with regional aspects of freshwater plants and aquatic weed problems. The last chapter on management contains the greatest number of contributions, subdivided into control of freshwater and riparian vegetation and utilisation of freshwater and riparian vegetation.
