Measuring Submerged Aquatic Macrophytes (SAMs)
Total(g/m2) by Species
In supporting New Mexico EPSCoR’s mission to better understand how water quality factors affect New Mexico’s sources of water, this study concentrates on understanding the life cycle, total primary production, nutrient cycling, oxygen production, and other key ecosystem contributions made by submerged aquatic macrophytes (SAMs) in the East Fork Jemez River (EFJR) in the Valles Caldera.

2. How many different species of submerged aquatic macrophytes (SAMs) did the researcher collect?
4. Using the graph and what you know about NM’s climate, predict what the biomass would be for each species of SAM if the researcher had collected data on November 15.
