With improved water quality through reductions in nutrient loading, water transparency increases and submerged vegetation can develop. However, recently, the water becomes more transparent, whereas no return of macrophytes is observed. This may be due to unsuitable abiotic conditions, grazing or a lack of propagules. In this project the seed bank and propagule availability is studied in two lakes with transparent water, but only few macrophytes.
