Atlas on distribution of submerged macrophytes published

In 2022, the atlas on the distribution of underwater macrophytes will be published, which was authored in large part by MariLim employees Karin Fürhaupter and Torsten Berg and managing director Thomas Meyer.

For the distribution atlas, historical and current data of macrophyte species of the German Baltic Sea coastline were compiled, georeferenced and presented in species-specific maps. In total, data of 257 taxa from 249 references of different types (environmental monitoring, research reports, doctoral, diploma and master theses, herbarium vouchers, environmental assessments for maritime constructions, …) were evaluated. In addition to the cartographic representation of the data, extensive taxonomic and ecological information was added and is presented in species-specific fact sheets.
