Abstract: A symposium was held at the 10th annual meeting of the North American Lake Management Society to discuss methods of Aquatic vegetation quantification and its application to an Aquatic plant management program. Topics discussed at this symposium included the importance of accurate taxonomic identifications, the use of transect and biomass sampling methods, development of manipulative experiments to evaluate management techniques, and advances in remote sensing for Aquatic plant quantification. These technical approaches were then illustrated in an ongoing governmental Aquatic plant management program. Techniques used for Aquatic plant quantification and the importance of vegetation quantification to an ongoing management program are summarized.
