Macrophyte survey (aquatic flora)

Macrophytes are an important component of hydrosystems. A thorough knowledge of species and their ecology enables us to:

  • Establish the ecological value of lake littoral areas, ponds and streams through inventories
  • Evaluate the effects of anthropic disturbances
  • Identify and determine high-value sites
  • Propose littoral area management measures (protection, restoration) as well as stream and pond preservation


As scuba-diving and underwater species experts, we have the ability to generate macrophyte underwater mapping.
