Restoration scheme for macrophytes in a hypertrophic water body, Wuli Lake, China
This report analyses the relevant factors that influence the restoration of macrophytes in hypertrophic water bodies, including hydrology, water quality and sediment. Wuli Lake in China is used as a case study for the goal of achieving limno-ecosystem protection and sustainable development. This report also identifies and discusses some potential macrophyte restoration measures, including pollution control at the source and reducing external pollutant loads to the lake, and environmental restoration measures to improve lake water quality and sediment conditions. The potential for the sustainable management of the lake ecosystem also was explored from the perspective of new restoration systems and mechanisms.
