ANNOUNCING http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/guide


- The first COMPLETE web site about aquatic

plant management in Florida


We are in the 18th month of a 24-month production of Aquatic Plant Management in Florida
Waters, A Web Site For The Interested Public. Much of it is online already, awaiting your
attention. ("We" are the University of Florida IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants and
the Florida DEP Bureau of Invasive Plant Management.)

Florida is home to 8,000 lakes, 1,700 rivers, thousands of miles of canals, 400 springs, a half-
dozen aquifers, millions of acres of marshes and swamps, and 14 million people. Each lake, each
river and each acre of marsh is unique, often home to native plants and animals, often threatened
by non-native invasive plants, and often surrounded by happy homeowners, many of whom have
their own ideas about what their waterbody should be like. Talk about aquatic plant management
problems!

http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/guide is here to help explain Florida's watery ecosystems, the need for
their management, and the methods used for their management. The goal of the web site is:

to help citizens, long-time and recently-arrived, understand plants and their management
in Florida waters

to help field workers, office supervisors, management agencies, elected boards and
government officials, eco-advocacy groups, legislators and others understand plants and
their management in Florida waters.

Come visit this 500+ page, 3,000 photograph web site, click on the major topics, or scroll down
to the large index of keywords.

U.S. Invasive Species Advisory Committee (ISAC) -

A Brief Overview

by Randall K. Stocker, Director of the UF-IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants and
Chair of ISAC

In February 1999, the Clinton Administration responded to pressure from scientists,
resource managers, environmentalists, and many others by issuing Executive Order 13112,
Invasive Species. Among other provisions, the Executive Order required the Secretary of Interior
to establish an advisory committee "to provide information and advice for consideration by the
[Invasive Species] Council." The Invasive Species Advisory Committee (ISAC), as it came to
be called, was to be composed of individuals "representing stakeholders," with a broad definition
of who would be considered stakeholders in the invasive species issue, including non-federal
government agencies, the scientific community, non-governmental organizations, trade groups,
commercial interests, and private landowners. This group would be asked to "...recommend plans
and actions at [local to ecosystem-based] levels to achieve the goals and objectives of the
Management Plan," also called for by the Executive Order. These recommendations would be
addressed to the "Invasive Species Council" (now the "National Invasive Species Council" or
NISC), composed of the Secretaries of State, Treasury, Defense, Interior, Agriculture,
Commerce, Transportation, and the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
NISC is co-chaired by the Secretaries of Interior, Agriculture and Commerce. There is currently a
small staff, lead by Executive Director of the Council Lori Williams.

The goals of the NISC/ISAC process included efforts to prevent the introduction of invasive
species; detect and respond rapidly to control invasive species; monitor invasive species
populations; restore native species and habitats; and promote public education.

The first ISAC meeting was held in January 2000 in Washington, DC, and ISAC members were
appointed for two-year terms. Since then, ISAC has meet three times per year, with the most
recent meeting held 29-30 October 2003. I was appointed to the first ISAC group, and re-
appointed in April 2002 for a second term, serving as ISAC chair. With the approaching
conclusion of my second term (my last meeting will be March 2004), this is an appropriate time
to review some of the expectations for ISAC and the subsequent performance of the partners in
this process.

At the first meeting, the Advisory Committee was asked to help executive branch agencies target
resources and address invasive species issues in a coordinated fashion to identify threats and
eradicate invasives where possible. We were asked to outline policy options, and to strive for




practical, budget-based recommendations from the best available science on resource
management. Members were informed that their deliberations would have far reaching
consequences, even international importance.

Results thus far: The Executive Order and the General Accounting Office have asked federal
agencies to identify current federal expenditures on invasive species, an important starting point
for tracking total federal budget allocations. ISAC assisted in the development of this country's
first National Invasive Species Management Plan. There has been a general increase in awareness
of the invasive species issue by federal agency, Congressional, and state agency staff. Public
awareness has increased as the media reports on new problems. Academic programs reflect this
increase in awareness as more campuses develop curricula on invasive species and new centers/
institutes are created. There are still many areas where progress has been limited or non-existent:
deadlines in the National Management Plan were too optimistic and most have been missed;
changes in administration and staffing have delayed progress; and the fundamental role that the
Advisory Committee could play with members of the National Invasive Species Council has not
clearly been defined. Still, significant progress has been made that deserves recognition, and the
scientific community, and especially professional societies such as the Weed Science Society of
America and the Aquatic Plant Management Society, were key factors in that progress.

AGORA Online access to research for low-income

countries


AGORA, or Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture, is an initiative launched in
October 2003 to provide free or low-cost online access to major scientific journals in agriculture
and related biological, environmental and social sciences to public institutions in developing
countries. Access to over 400 journals from leading academic publishers will be provided via
AGORA. Led by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, the
goal of AGORA is to increase the quality and effectiveness of agricultural research, education
and training in low-income countries, with the long range goal of improving food security.

Founding publishers of AGORA are Blackwell, CABI, Elsevier, Kluwer Academic, Lippincott,
Williams & Wilkins, Nature Publishing Group, Oxford University Press, Springer-Verlag, and
John Wiley & Sons. Of the 400 plus journals being offered, the following are included: American
Journal of Botany, Annals of Botany, Annual Review of Plant Biology, Aquaculture, Aquatic
Botany, Aquatic Ecology, Biological Control, Biological Invasions, Botanical Journal of the
Linnean Society, Conservation Biology, Ecological Modelling, Environmental and Experimental
Botany, Freshwater Biology, Hydrobiologia, International Review ofHydrobiology, Journal of
Ecology, Journal of Experimental Botany, Nature, New Phytologist, Oecologia, Plant Pathology,
Remote Sensing of Environment, Science of the Total Environment, Weed Research, and
Wetlands Ecology and Management.

Access to AGORA will be password controlled and relevant institutions will be required to
register with FAO. Approximately 70 eligible countries have been listed, primarily those with an
annual GNI per capital per year of US$1000 or less. The Publishing Partners reserve the right to
amend the list. Within these countries, AGORA will benefit not-for-profit national academic,
research or government institutions in agriculture and related biological, environmental and
social sciences. This will include universities and colleges; research institutes; agricultural
extension centers, government offices and libraries. A simple online form is all that is required to
register for AGORA and only one form per institution is required.

U.S. Agency 'AIMS' at Internet Sales of Banned

Plants

"The U.S., jolted into action by the mushrooming magnitude of invasive plants and the damage
they have wrought--and continue to cause-- has launched a new, internet-based effort to choke
off dlne'tlic retail sales of banned plants as one phase of a strategy to limit further introduction
and spread of invasive plant species. "

Scientists at the Center for Integrated Pest Management (CIPM) at North Carolina State
University, together with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health
Inspection Service (USDA/APHIS), have developed a "web-crawler," software that searches
the internet for web sites selling plants officially defined as noxious weeds or invasive
species*. The system, Agricultural Internet Monitoring System (AIMS), will be used
primarily to locate, then notify, offending vendors, according to R.E. Stinner, lead researcher on
the AIMS program.

Vendors identified by AIMS as offering banned species online will be notified and directed to
stop selling the plants. AIMS will then keep track of retailers who continue to sell illegal plants;
refusal to comply with notification can lead to prosecution and the possibility of substantial fines.

Depending on performance and results from the AIMS program, federal officials will consider
developing a cooperative effort with equivalent organizations in other countries. Authorities in
Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa have expressed an interest in some form of joint effort.

*USDA/APHIS Regulated Pest List. or USDA/APHIS Regulated Pest List in PDF format.
Pests other than weeds are listed (viruses, insects, bacteria, etc.)

For more information, contact Ron Stinner, CIPM, North Carolina State University, 919-515-

NATIVE AQUATIC PLANTS


























Lest we forget, with so much current emphasis on invasive non-natives, most plants in the U.S. are
native; beneficial to animals, humans, and the environment; and often beautiful. So, here are two photo-
murals of 76 native freshwater plants of the U.S.. Of the plants depicted, 100% are in Florida; 97% are also
found in the rest of the Southeast U.S.; 50% are found in the Eastern U.S.; 22% are found in the West; and 22%
are found throughout most of the U.S.

Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation

A Research Division of Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt's collecting interests brought together aspects of art,
history, science and literature as they related to plants and gardens. Her private book
collection was well known, and her scholarship led her also to collect related artworks,
portraits and manuscripts significant in the history of botany. Her collecting efforts, as
well as those of the early Hunt Botanical Library staff focused on publications and
manuscripts from 1730 to 1840, a period of intense intellectual ferment and productivity
in botanical history. [1]

The Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentationspecializes in the history of botany. Founded
in 1961, the Institute is an international center for bibliographical research and service in the
interests of botany and horticulture, as well as a center for the study of all aspects of the history
of the plant sciences. It serves the international scientific community through research and
documentation. The Institute maintains authoritative collections of books, plant images,
manuscripts, portraits and data files, and provides publications and other forms of information
service. It serves the reference needs of biologists, historians, librarians, bibliographers and the
interested public.

The Institute's collections are curated by four departments: archives, art, bibliography, and the
library. The current collections include approximately 28,000 books and botanical publications
that date from the 1400s; 24,000 portraits and 30,000 watercolors, drawings and prints;
manuscripts, with 2,000 items such as letters, journals and diaries, field notes, documents, drafts
of published and unpublished books and articles, annotated maps, passports, and other personal
papers of botanists.

Databases at the Hunt Institute include one of the world's largest and most broadly representative
collections of botanical art and illustration; the library, which is searchable via the Carnegie
Mellon University Libraries' online catalogues at http://cameo.library.cmu.edu; the Categorical
Glossary for the Flora of North America Project; the Register of Original Botanical Art; the
Portrait Collection; and databases pertaining to Linnaean dissertations. The Institute is in the
process of formatting existing databases for the Web.

New Translation of Classic Book


The Biology ofAquatic Plants

translated from Heinrich Schenck's German Biologice der Wassergewaechse, 1886,
by Donald H. Les, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of
Connecticut

"... one of the most important general contributions ever made to the study of water
plants..."

Agnes Arber (1920) on Schenck's Die Biologice der Wassergewaechse


Introduction

The German scientific literature of the 19th century comprises an extensive collection of
original, meticulous, and accurate botanical information. As an American graduate student in the
1980's, I was warned lightheartedly, "Never get too excited about your findings because a
German botanist had probably made the same discovery a hundred years ago." Several semesters
of graduate school German gave me access to this literature and revealed the impressive amount
of botanical data that remained virtually inaccessible to most English speaking scientists.
Unfortunately, this problem is exacerbated by the preeminence of the English language in the
contemporary scientific literature, which in English speaking countries has perhaps reduced the
need for fluency in the classical languages.

Die Biologie der Wassergewaechse is an essential reference for students in the field of aquatic
plant biology because it presents an insightful review of major research conducted during the
19th century, a period of intensive botanical investigation. Today, with a shift in emphasis to
molecular and other laboratory based scientific research, basic studies of aquatic plant natural
history have waned and this area is still best represented in the older literature. Die Biologie der
Wassergewaechse contains invaluable knowledge on this topic.

Unfortunately, Schenck's work has become increasingly forsaken in subsequent English language
books written on aquatic plants. In Water plants [1] (1920), the first comprehensive monograph
of aquatic plants to be published in English, Die Biologie der Wassergewaechse is cited more
than 25 times. However, in The Biology ofAquatic Vascular Plants [2] (1967), the work is cited
only nine times and in Limnological Botany [3] (1975), it is not even mentioned.





The reduced citations are not simply due to obsolescence of subject matter, because much of the
content remains accurate to this day. Moreover, Schenck's book provides an important historical
perspective on the state of knowledge that existed in this branch of science during the 19th
century. This book appeared in the aftermath of Darwin's Origin of Species and presents some of
the first characterizations of aquatic plant adaptations with evolutionary overtones.

LOOKING BENEATH THE SURFACE

by Mary Langeland, University of Florida, Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants, APIRS

As the one who assigns keywords and categories to the thousands of articles, books, and
miscellaneous printed materials for the Aquatic and Invasive Plant Information Retrieval System
(APIRS), I thoroughly enjoy the occasional "oddity" that crosses my desk. After reviewing and
cataloguing hundred of "regular articles" published in refereed journals or reports by government
agencies or books written by earnest authors on the value of biodiversity or environmental
implications of plant invasions, imagine my delight when an out-of-the-ordinary piece of
literature appears in the stacks of papers and books cluttering my office. It causes me to take
stock and, so to speak, "look beneath the surface."

The human face of science usually characterizes these serendipities. The sheer delight and joy
that the researcher experiences rarely shines through in the scientific literature it is de rigueur to
be detached and unbiased. But, as humans, we are not just workers; rather, we respond to our
work and our environment.

Let me share one such gem with you Flowers of Marsh and Stream by lolo A. Williams
(Penguin Books, Ltd., Harmondsworth, Middlesex, England, 1946). Williams saw that

... the winter ponds and streams have their beauty of vegetation, too not on the
banks or near the shores, where the coots and water hens tread sodden alleyways
among the dead and broken stems and leaves of Typha and Sparganium, but in the
clear depths where the tufts of water starwort wave rhythmically to and fro as the
current glides past. On a winter's day they can, seen through the glistening pellucid
stream as one peers down to its sandy bottom, seem the greenest thing in the whole
landscape. (p. 5)

This kind of writing attracts attention because of its insight into why the scientist or researcher
does what they do. Perhaps you have stood on the banks of a clear stream and seen the
incomparable beauty of the natural world, your heart was touched and a desire to protect,
preserve and understand this priceless treasure was born and you were lead to seek a career in the
environmental sciences. In that moment your spirit sought to understand the mystery behind the
creation, behind "the greenest thing in the whole landscape."

Editor's Note: Mary Langeland has performed one of our most important functions at APIRS for
the last fifteen years: the cataloging of literally thousands of citations in the APIRS database.




Mary truly looks beneath the surface to understand the mystery behind the creation. She is an
invaluable asset both to us and to all users of the APIRS database. Thankyou, Mary!

23(2) AQUAPHYTE AQUAPHYTE ONLINE WINTER 2003 ANNOUNCING http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/guide The first COMPLETE web site about aquatic plant management in Florida We are in the 18th month of a 24-month production of Aquatic Plant Management in Florida Waters, A Web Site For The Interested Public. Much of it is online already, awaiting your attention. (We are the University of Florida IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants and the Florida DEP Bureau of Invasive Plant Management.) Florida is home to 8,000 lakes, 1,700 rivers, thousands of miles of canals, 400 springs, a halfdozen aquifers, millions of acres of marshes and swamps, and 14 million people. Each lake, each river and each acre of marsh is unique, often home to native plants and animals, often threatened by non-native invasive plants, and often surrounded by happy homeowners, many of whom have their own ideas about what their waterbody should be like. Talk about aquatic plant management problems! http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/guide is here to help explain Floridas watery ecosystems, the need for their management, and the methods used for their management. The goal of the web site is: to help citizens, long-time and recently-arrived, understand plants and their management in Florida waters to help field workers, office supervisors, management agencies, elected boards and government officials, eco-advocacy groups, legislators and others understand plants and their management in Florida waters. Come visit this 500+ page, 3,000 photograph web site, click on the major topics, or scroll down to the large index of keywords.

23(2) AQUAPHYTE AQUAPHYTE ONLINE WINTER 2003 U.S. Invasive Species Advisory Committee (ISAC) A Brief Overviewby Randall K. Stocker, Director of the UF-IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants and Chair of ISAC In February 1999, the Clinton Administration responded to pressure from scientists, resource managers, environmentalists, and many others by issuing Executive Order 13112, Invasive Species. Among other provisions, the Executive Order required the Secretary of Interior to establish an advisory committee to provide information and advice for consideration by the [Invasive Species] Council. The Invasive Species Advisory Committee (ISAC), as it came to be called, was to be composed of individuals representing stakeholders, with a broad definition of who would be considered stakeholders in the invasive species issue, including non-federal government agencies, the scientific community, non-governmental organizations, trade groups, commercial interests, and private landowners. This group would be asked to ...recommend plans and actions at [local to ecosystem-based] levels to achieve the goals and objectives of the Management Plan, also called for by the Executive Order. These recommendations would be addressed to the Invasive Species Council (now the National Invasive Species Council or NISC), composed of the Secretaries of State, Treasury, Defense, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Transportation, and the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. NISC is co-chaired by the Secretaries of Interior, Agriculture and Commerce. There is currently a small staff, lead by Executive Director of the Council Lori Williams. The goals of the NISC/ISAC process included efforts to prevent the introduction of invasive species; detect and respond rapidly to control invasive species; monitor invasive species populations; restore native species and habitats; and promote public education. The first ISAC meeting was held in January 2000 in Washington, DC, and ISAC members were appointed for two-year terms. Since then, ISAC has meet three times per year, with the most recent meeting held 29-30 October 2003. I was appointed to the first ISAC group, and reappointed in April 2002 for a second term, serving as ISAC chair. With the approaching conclusion of my second term (my last meeting will be March 2004), this is an appropriate time to review some of the expectations for ISAC and the subsequent performance of the partners in this process. At the first meeting, the Advisory Committee was asked to help executive branch agencies target resources and address invasive species issues in a coordinated fashion to identify threats and eradicate invasives where possible. We were asked to outline policy options, and to strive for http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/aqw03-is.html (1 of 2) [6/6/2008 1:55:14 PM]

23(2) AQUAPHYTE practical, budget-based recommendations from the best available science on resource management. Members were informed that their deliberations would have far reaching consequences, even international importance. Results thus far: The Executive Order and the General Accounting Office have asked federal agencies to identify current federal expenditures on invasive species, an important starting point for tracking total federal budget allocations. ISAC assisted in the development of this countrys first National Invasive Species Management Plan. There has been a general increase in awareness of the invasive species issue by federal agency, Congressional, and state agency staff. Public awareness has increased as the media reports on new problems. Academic programs reflect this increase in awareness as more campuses develop curricula on invasive species and new centers/ institutes are created. There are still many areas where progress has been limited or non-existent: deadlines in the National Management Plan were too optimistic and most have been missed; changes in administration and staffing have delayed progress; and the fundamental role that the Advisory Committee could play with members of the National Invasive Species Council has not clearly been defined. Still, significant progress has been made that deserves recognition, and the scientific community, and especially professional societies such as the Weed Science Society of America and the Aquatic Plant Management Society, were key factors in that progress.

23(2) AQUAPHYTE AQUAPHYTE ONLINE WINTER 2003 AGORA Online access to research for low-income countries AGORA, or Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture, is an initiative launched in October 2003 to provide free or low-cost online access to major scientific journals in agriculture and related biological, environmental and social sciences to public institutions in developing countries. Access to over 400 journals from leading academic publishers will be provided via AGORA. Led by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, the goal of AGORA is to increase the quality and effectiveness of agricultural research, education and training in low-income countries, with the long range goal of improving food security. Founding publishers of AGORA are Blackwell, CABI, Elsevier, Kluwer Academic, Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, Nature Publishing Group, Oxford University Press, Springer-Verlag, and John Wiley & Sons. Of the 400 plus journals being offered, the following are included: American Journal of Botany, Annals of Botany, Annual Review of Plant Biology, Aquaculture, Aquatic Botany, Aquatic Ecology, Biological Control, Biological Invasions, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, Conservation Biology, Ecological Modelling, Environmental and Experimental Botany, Freshwater Biology, Hydrobiologia, International Review of Hydrobiology, Journal of Ecology, Journal of Experimental Botany, Nature, New Phytologist, Oecologia, Plant Pathology, Remote Sensing of Environment, Science of the Total Environment, Weed Research, and Wetlands Ecology and Management. Access to AGORA will be password controlled and relevant institutions will be required to register with FAO. Approximately 70 eligible countries have been listed, primarily those with an annual GNI per capita per year of US$1000 or less. The Publishing Partners reserve the right to amend the list. Within these countries, AGORA will benefit not-for-profit national academic, research or government institutions in agriculture and related biological, environmental and social sciences. This will include universities and colleges; research institutes; agricultural extension centers, government offices and libraries. A simple online form is all that is required to register for AGORA and only one form per institution is required.

23(2) AQUAPHYTE AQUAPHYTE ONLINE WINTER 2003 U.S. Agency AIMS at Internet Sales of Banned PlantsThe U.S., jolted into action by the mushrooming magnitude of invasive plants and the damage they have wrought--and continue to cause-has launched a new, internet-based effort to choke off domestic retail sales of banned plants as one phase of a strategy to limit further introduction and spread of invasive plant species. Scientists at the Center for Integrated Pest Management (CIPM) at North Carolina State University, together with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA/APHIS), have developed a web-crawler, software that searches the internet for web sites selling plants officially defined as noxious weeds or invasive species*. The system, Agricultural Internet Monitoring System (AIMS), will be used primarily to locate, then notify, offending vendors, according to R.E. Stinner, lead researcher on the AIMS program. Vendors identified by AIMS as offering banned species online will be notified and directed to stop selling the plants. AIMS will then keep track of retailers who continue to sell illegal plants; refusal to comply with notification can lead to prosecution and the possibility of substantial fines. Depending on performance and results from the AIMS program, federal officials will consider developing a cooperative effort with equivalent organizations in other countries. Authorities in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa have expressed an interest in some form of joint effort. * USDA/APHIS Regulated Pest List. or USDA/APHIS Regulated Pest List in PDF format.

Four Photo-Murals Native Freshwater, and Non-Native Invasive APIRS Lest we forget, with so much current emphasis on invasive non-natives, most plants in the U.S. are native; beneficial to animals, humans, and the environment; and often beautiful. So, here are two photomurals of 76 native freshwater plants of the U.S.. Of the plants depicted, 100% are in Florida; 97% are also found in the rest of the Southeast U.S.; 50% are found in the Eastern U.S.; 22% are found in the West; and 22% are found throughout most of the U.S. Click here for the list of plants featured on the two "native" murals.

23(2) AQUAPHYTE AQUAPHYTE ONLINE WINTER 2003 Hunt Institute for Botanical DocumentationA Research Division of Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt's collecting interests brought together aspects of art, history, science and literature as they related to plants and gardens. Her private book collection was well known, and her scholarship led her also to collect related artworks, portraits and manuscripts significant in the history of botany. Her collecting efforts, as well as those of the early Hunt Botanical Library staff, focused on publications and manuscripts from 1730 to 1840, a period of intense intellectual ferment and productivity in botanical history. [1] The Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentationspecializes in the history of botany. Founded in 1961, the Institute is an international center for bibliographical research and service in the interests of botany and horticulture, as well as a center for the study of all aspects of the history of the plant sciences. It serves the international scientific community through research and documentation. The Institute maintains authoritative collections of books, plant images, manuscripts, portraits and data files, and provides publications and other forms of information service. It serves the reference needs of biologists, historians, librarians, bibliographers and the interested public. The Institutes collections are curated by four departments: archives, art, bibliography, and the library. The current collections include approximately 28,000 books and botanical publications that date from the 1400s; 24,000 portraits and 30,000 watercolors, drawings and prints; manuscripts, with 2,000 items such as letters, journals and diaries, field notes, documents, drafts of published and unpublished books and articles, annotated maps, passports, and other personal papers of botanists. Databases at the Hunt Institute include one of the worlds largest and most broadly representative collections of botanical art and illustration; the library, which is searchable via the Carnegie Mellon University Libraries online catalogues at http://cameo.library.cmu.edu; the Categorical Glossary for the Flora of North America Project; the Register of Original Botanical Art; the Portrait Collection; and databases pertaining to Linnaean dissertations. The Institute is in the process of formatting existing databases for the Web.

23(2) AQUAPHYTE AQUAPHYTE ONLINE WINTER 2003 New Translation of Classic Book The Biology of Aquatic Plantstranslated from Heinrich Schencks German Biologie der Wassergewaechse, 1886, by Donald H. Les, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut "... one of the most important general contributions ever made to the study of water plants..." Agnes Arber (1920) on Schenck's Die Biologie der Wassergewaechse Introduction The German scientific literature of the 19th century comprises an extensive collection of original, meticulous, and accurate botanical information. As an American graduate student in the 1980's, I was warned lightheartedly, "Never get too excited about your findings because a German botanist had probably made the same discovery a hundred years ago." Several semesters of graduate school German gave me access to this literature and revealed the impressive amount of botanical data that remained virtually inaccessible to most English speaking scientists. Unfortunately, this problem is exacerbated by the preeminence of the English language in the contemporary scientific literature, which in English speaking countries has perhaps reduced the need for fluency in the classical languages. Die Biologie der Wassergewaechse is an essential reference for students in the field of aquatic plant biology because it presents an insightful review of major research conducted during the 19th century, a period of intensive botanical investigation. Today, with a shift in emphasis to molecular and other laboratory based scientific research, basic studies of aquatic plant natural history have waned and this area is still best represented in the older literature. Die Biologie der Wassergewaechse contains invaluable knowledge on this topic. Unfortunately, Schenck's work has become increasingly forsaken in subsequent English language books written on aquatic plants. In Water plants [1] (1920), the first comprehensive monograph of aquatic plants to be published in English, Die Biologie der Wassergewaechse is cited more than 25 times. However, in The Biology of Aquatic Vascular Plants [2] (1967), the work is cited only nine times and in Limnological Botany [3] (1975), it is not even mentioned. http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/aqw03-cl.html (1 of 2) [6/6/2008 1:55:17 PM]

23(2) AQUAPHYTE The reduced citations are not simply due to obsolescence of subject matter, because much of the content remains accurate to this day. Moreover, Schenck's book provides an important historical perspective on the state of knowledge that existed in this branch of science during the 19th century. This book appeared in the aftermath of Darwin's Origin of Species and presents some of the first characterizations of aquatic plant adaptations with evolutionary overtones. [1] Arber, A. 1920.

23(2) AQUAPHYTE AQUAPHYTE ONLINE WINTER 2003 LOOKING BENEATH THE SURFACEby Mary Langeland, University of Florida, Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants, APIRS As the one who assigns keywords and categories to the thousands of articles, books, and miscellaneous printed materials for the Aquatic and Invasive Plant Information Retrieval System (APIRS), I thoroughly enjoy the occasional "oddity" that crosses my desk. After reviewing and cataloguing hundred of "regular articles" published in refereed journals or reports by government agencies or books written by earnest authors on the value of biodiversity or environmental implications of plant invasions, imagine my delight when an out-of-the-ordinary piece of literature appears in the stacks of papers and books cluttering my office. It causes me to take stock and, so to speak, "look beneath the surface." The human face of science usually characterizes these serendipities. The sheer delight and joy that the researcher experiences rarely shines through in the scientific literature it is de rigueur to be detached and unbiased. But, as humans, we are not just workers; rather, we respond to our work and our environment. Let me share one such gem with you Flowers of Marsh and Stream by Iolo A. Williams (Penguin Books, Ltd., Harmondsworth, Middlesex, England, 1946). Williams saw that the winter ponds and streams have their beauty of vegetation, too not on the banks or near the shores, where the coots and water hens tread sodden alleyways among the dead and broken stems and leaves of Typha and Sparganium, but in the clear depths where the tufts of water starwort wave rhythmically to and fro as the current glides past. On a winters day they can, seen through the glistening pellucid stream as one peers down to its sandy bottom, seem the greenest thing in the whole landscape. (p. 5) This kind of writing attracts attention because of its insight into why the scientist or researcher does what they do. Perhaps you have stood on the banks of a clear stream and seen the incomparable beauty of the natural world, your heart was touched and a desire to protect, preserve and understand this priceless treasure was born and you were lead to seek a career in the environmental sciences. In that moment your spirit sought to understand the mystery behind the creation, behind "the greenest thing in the whole landscape. Editors Note: Mary Langeland has performed one of our most important functions at APIRS for the last fifteen years: the cataloging of literally thousands of citations in the APIRS database. http://plants.ifas.ufl.edu/aqw03-lo.html (1 of 2) [6/6/2008 1:55:18 PM]
