Abstract

Recent research (e.g. Sayer et al., 2008; Wood et al., 2003) has highlighted an urgent need to consider ornamental and other man-make shallow lakes as potential sites for nature conservation. In Norfolk such lakes have survived the ravages of eutrophication (nutrient enrichment) better than the Norfolk Broads due to their smaller catchments in the upper reaches of river systems. As a consequence many of them (particularly some ornamental lakes, but probably many gravel-pits), still support species-rich communities of aquatic plants (and probably invertebrates), including, in some cases, substantial populations of Characeae. For this reason these lakes are very much worthy of nature conservation.
