    In Tom's various PDf files (e.g. Volume 1, Issue 4) he talks about SAM.

    But as he doesn't say what SAM is, I'm a little lost!

    Can someone fill me in? :)

    A 'search' doesn't want to work for small words.

    Is there a Glossary on this site?

    Thanks for that Peter.

    SAM = Submersed Aquatic Macrophytes = Submersed Aquatic Plants?

    :D

    Plant vs a macrophyte=> Chara, for most pratcial purposes is more like a plant than an alga.

    Same with respect to most marine seaweeds, algae, kelps etc, they act more like aquatic plants and I'll generally refer to them as such.
