In spite of many trends detected by Thomaz and Bini regarding aquatic macrophytes, the investigation was done just in studies carried out in Brazil. Thus, an evaluation of publications of the whole Neotropics is still fundameentos.

A total of papers were analyzed, considering the criteria delineated in our Methods. This indicates the concern of the researches in identifying the main variables affecting aquatic plant growth, decomposition and community structure e.

Services on Demand Journal. Measuring progress and evolution in science and technology. However, a precise view of ecological studies using aquatic macrophytes is necessary to reach a reliable evaluation of the scientific production.

Chemical composition of floating aquatic macrophytes used to treat of aquaculture wastewater. Although these approaches are adequate for macrophytes, they usually lack a deeper conceptual framework necessary to be included in “hot” areas of Ecology.

Finally, problems caused by the excessive growth of aquatic vegetation, especially in reservoirs can also be another factor accounting for this trend Thomaz and Bini, In addition, the cooperation among Neotropical countries is still scarce.

In addition, although not informed in the abstracts, if we consider the studies carried in lagoons, we would possibly reach the conclusion that these habitats are shallows and located in wetlands.

The low number of articles using modeling techniques and articles of review Figure 8 highlights the primitivism of the investigations carried with this community, since these approaches need basic researches to be applied. The scientometrics research can be considered the area of research that utilizes information contained in publications to obtain a scientific output of its trends and lacks Verbeek et al.


The study of aquatic macrophytes in Neotropics: a scientometrical view of the main trends and gaps

The study of aquatic macrophytes in Neotropics: This tendency is coherent with the clear enhancement in the Latin American scientific production over the last decade Hill, ; Hermes-Lima et al. This could also be explained by the high importance of aquatic plant communities for the production of organic matter Piedade et al.

Our analyses showed that the studies dealt mostly with the influences of aquatic macrophytes on organisms and abiotic features. In fact, when growing in suitable habitats several species are considered aquatic weeds due to massive colonization and negative effects upon aquatic diversity and ecosystem functioning Camargo et al.

A great variety of journals were used to publish studies on aquatic plants and “Hydrobiologia” was the main one, publishing ca.

Ecological studies involving aquatic plants substantially increased in the last years. Thus the study of aquatic macrophytes in Neotropical regions still needs basic researches to provide scientific progress. This is not a surprise, since this is the country with more scientific expression worldwide Hermes-Lima et al.

Henry-Silva and Camargo, Finally, it is also worth to note the lack of investigations directed to “hot” fields of Ecology, such as the impacts of invasive species, the role of plants as foundation species mechanism of facilitation and the debates on diversity-stability and diversity-ecosystem functioning, among others.

Rolon and Maltchik, Planta Daninhavol. This is strikingly, since taxonomy is a central issue for ecological and conservational researches Brandon et al. All the contents of this journal, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

Emergent aquatic macrophytes are also highly studied, possibly due to the importance of this plants that may have extremely high primary production Piedade et al. Moreover, these approaches have a predictive power, and therefore, are also essential in conservation efforts Pace, Additionally, the historical roots of limnology in Neotropical regions are strongly correlated to investigations about ecosystem processes and functioning e.


These plants are capable of colonizing several kinds of aquatic environments e. Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Chile were the most productive among Neotropical countries. The structuring role of submerged macrophytes in lakes.

Environmental factors as predictors of aquatic macrophyte richness and composition in wetlands of southern Brazil. For limnkloga, there were some articles published in medical journals, since many species have been pointed limnologga shelters for disease vectors, or even have been used in medicine.

Results and Discussion A total of papers were analyzed, considering the criteria delineated in our Methods. A critique for Ecology. Commonly, four morphotypes or life forms are used to classify aquatic macrophytes: In a critical analysis using papers published untilThomaz and Bini highlighted that papers about aquatic plants in Brazil were scarce.

Hence, our results showed the paucity of studies on macrophyte biodiversity, essential limnopoga support conservation efforts and to subsidize further investigations testing ecological hypotheses. This highlights the importance and urgency of an evaluation of ecological studies of aquatic macrophytes in this region. Further information to address our questions were taken from abstracts: Additionally, considering the whole scientific production of Latin America, previous investigations demonstrated that Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Chile were the fundamentls productive countries Hill, ; Hermes-Lima et al.
