Morphometric and biotic variables as potential predictors of Ludwigia sedoides (Humb. & Bonpl.) Hara in a large Amazonian reservoir
Ludwigia sedoides is an aquatic macrophyte commonly found in Neotropical reservoirs, but little is known about the factors determining its distribution. The present study is the first to indicate that morphometric variables are potential predictors of L. sedoides. Sheltered sites with low slope and moderate depths represented favorable environments for colonization and growth.
