Growth and nutrient dynamics of soft-stem bulrush in constructed wetlands treating nutrient-rich wastewaters



Growth and nutrient dynamics of soft-stem bulrush in constructed wetlands treating nutrient-rich wastewaters



Wetlands Ecology and Management 9(1): 49-73



The growth characteristics and nutritional status of Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani (soft-stem bulrush or lake clubrush) were investigated during the second and third growth seasons, between November 1989 and January 1992, in four equivalent subsurface-flow, gravel-bed constructed treatment wetlands in Hamilton, New Zealand. Each wetland was supplied with a different hydraulic loading rate of agricultural wastewater (from dairy farms), covering the range commonly applied to such systems.
