Guidelines for managing mass developments of macrophytes: a cookbook tool

Management of water courses with dense aquatic vegetation is challenging. MadMacs developed guidelines to assist managers of invaded waterbodies with decision-making on control options to rehabilitate aquatic ecosystems, thereby increasing biodiversity and improving the ecosystem structure and functioning of these crucial systems.

These guidelines outline appropriate methods to manage mass developments of macrophytes, while maximising ecosystem services based on the latest research of our multinational study.
