This paper reports some studies on photosynthesis, as measured by the 14C method, in Utricularia and its associated algal epiphytes in the Everglades National Park. The results provide evidence that the rate of photosynthesis is much greater in epiphyte-laden Utricularia than in epiphyte-free plants. This evidence leads to the suggestion that the epiphytes, rather than the macrophyte, are responsible for most of the primary production in this aquatic ecosystem.
