This study describes a wetland eutrophication model that accounts for the ecological connections between phytoplankton, macrophytes, and nutrients released from sediment; it also includes a literature review of existing macrophyte models. The study specifically focuses on the Cootes Paradise Marsh, which is a degraded Great Lakes wetland in southern Ontario (Canada).
