Plant Identification Resources

In order to effectively perform lake sampling using the Lake Vegetative Index (LVI), it is imperative to know the aquatic plants that are likely to be encountered. This page is intended to be a repository for helpful information to use in the identification of commonly encountered aquatic plants. It is NOT intended to replace the need for more formal field and classroom training.

UPDATE REGARDING HABITAT ASSESSMENT PROFICIENCY TESTING FOR 2020

Due to COVID-19, DEP was unable to complete the establishment of new Habitat Assessment Proficiency Testing sites in 2020. In lieu of testing opportunities, DEP will extend the current status of samplers through 2021.

If you have never tested as part of the Habitat Assessment proficiency process, please contact Joy.Jackson@floridadep.gov for instructions on testing at previously-established sites in your region.
