Aquatic plants contain silica, which can reduce plant palatability to herbivores and plant decomposition.

However, it is unclear how temperature rise affects the silica content of aquatic plants.

In this project, we test the effect of temperature rise on the silica content of aquatic plants and their palatability and decomposition.
