WATERMEAL


The common name duckweed usually includes species of watermeal. Besides the Greater and Lesser Duckweeds, three species of Watermeal have recently been identified in Fontenelle Forest. Neale Woods has not recently been surveyed for these species, but one can assume that they occur there in similar habitat as well. The identification of watermeal down to species - the world's smallest primitive flower - is beyond the scope of this web site. It requires examination under a microscope.
