Abstract

The littoral aquatic macrophytes flora of 31 Galloway lochs was surveyed in 1983-84. Despite methodological limitations, differences between contemporary and documentary floristic data suggest oligotrophication in 8 out of 23 sites since 1904-1905. The appearance of Sphagnum spp. in Loch Fleet, together with an apparent loss of calcicole species from other sites, may represent a floristic response to water acidification.
