No Transect Data Obtained | No Water Data Obtained

Wyler Pond is a private pond located in Weston, CT. It is only about 0.1-acre in size. Five species were found within the lake: western waterweed (Elodea nuttallii), flat-stemmed pondweed (Potamogeton zosteriformis), small pondweed (Potamogeton pusillus), water starwort (Callitriche species), and parrotfeather (Myriophyllum aquaticum ). Parrotfeather is the only invasive species found in the lake and was also the dominate plant species found. It grew in a dense ring around the perimeter of the lake with medium sized patches growing closer to the center. The remainder of the species coexisted in the lake in fairly equal amounts. The northern portion found small pondweed, water starwort, and parrotfeather. From the middle to southern portions, all species could be found.
