Rooted submerged vegetation of mesotrophic waterbodies

English name: Rooted submerged vegetation of mesotrophic waterbodies

Description (English)

'Formations of water bodies constituted by submerged, rooted, perennial phanerogams with often emerging flower spikes, in particular entirely immersed pondweeds of genus Potamogeton.
