The effects of phosphates on aquatic plants 

Aquatic plants are an important component of lake systems. These plants may be totally submerged beneath the lake surface, floating, or growing along the shoreline. They provide food and shelter for bugs, fish and other organisms, prevent shoreline erosion, filter pollutants from adjacent shoreline activities, and provide oxygen to the surrounding environment.
Any conditions that harm such a balanced environment can potentially destroy thousands of organisms that live there. Since phosphates are common pollutants of lakes, in this project we investigate the effect of phosphates on aquatic plants.
 Project description:
In this project you will investigate the effects of different amounts of phosphate on the growth of aquatic plants. Material needed for your experiments can be obtained locally.
