The Vainameri area belongs to the good ecological quality class as most of the macrovegetation biomass is formed by perennial species supported by high coverage of charophyte communities or Fucus spp.
Larvae of this species were found in partially shaded clear water, with the presence of mats of the genus of filamentous charophyte green algae, Spyrogira.
However, the grouping of all charophyte species by genus and assigning a single C value to each group results in a loss of information and may not provide an accurate evaluation of the floristic quality of a given site.
aspera, or other species such as the charophyte Tolypella glomerata and Potamogeton pusillus, are characteristic of freshwater.

Charophyte communities are an important element in shallow enclosed fresh- and brackish-water ecosystems (Mathieson and Nienhuis, 1991; van den Berg et al.
The soundest approach, perhaps, is to appreciate and understand the extensive evidence available for advanced charophyte--land-plant relationships and then to examine carefully the life cycles of these charophytes for the potential evolutionary insights they may bring (i.
Although many charophyte species exhibit an intermediate habitat fidelity, others are very sensitive to disturbance and show strong fidelity to more pristine lakes.
