Book on aq. plants (fwd)

Ha! Finally, a use for this list other than fielding complaints. :)
Got this e-mail today; perhaps someone would like to get a copy of this
book and review it for the AGA (hint, hint).

Subject: Book on aq. plants


I've just been looking around the internet and came across your interesting
web page. I don't know if you ever feature publications, but I want to tell
you about a new book called, "Wetland Plants: Biology and Ecology" by
myself and Siobhan Fennessy, published by CRC Press and out this summer. It
is a college level textbook and reference book, meant to update
Sculthorpe's 1967 book, "Aquatic Plants." It may interest people who like
aquatic gardening because we give examples from all over the world and we
discuss in detail the adaptations of aquatic plants to life in anoxic
sediments and underwater (i.e., to low CO2, low oxygen levels, low light).
We also have a full chapter on the reproduction of aquatic plants, and talk
about the many ways that aquatic plants reproduce vegetatively. We have a
chapter on invasive plants, and we also have a section on carnivorous
wetland plants. There is a table of contents and more information at:
