Abstract

The problem as stated in the contract for this survey is that “the River Wye is regarded as a Grade 1 site in the Nature Conservation Review. The enlargement of an existing reservoir at Craig Goch in Powys intended eventually to regulate the river flow within the Wye and Severn could have an undesirable and adverse effect upon the ecology and Nature Conservation interest of the River Wye.” The object of this survey, again as stated in the Nature Conservancy Council contract, is “to determine the distribution of aquatic and marginal plants within the River, Wye, which is defined loosely as the river plus its retaining banks. To study aspects of the ecology of riparian habitats by relating distribution to recorded variables, and suggest possible means of management.” It is proposed that the vegetation survey is to take 60% of the available time and the experimental side 40%. Mr. D.G. Merry has been appointed as a research assistant for three years to work on the project under the supervision of Dr. F.M. Slater.
