The research described here is part of a 2-year study to characterize the structure and function of the littoral macrophyte community in Jackson Lake, Grand Teton National Park. The objectives for the 1st year were: 1) to identify the plant species occuring in the lake; 2) to quantify their relative abundances; 3) to characterize the littoral habitat, and; 4) to construct a detailed map of macrophyte distribution. Data collected during the first field season will be used to help evaluate results of experiments conducted during year two on mechanisms affecting macrophyte segregation.
