Many British Stonewort
species are under threat due to water pollution as they are very sensitive to nitrates and phosphates.

The shallow, clear water, with the sunlight playing on the surface, allowed the rays to filter down through the ripples, at times dousing the lush green stonewort
beds in sparkling, dancing light spots; plant reflections in the mirrored under-surface of the water - it was beautiful, at times eerie and surreal.
Within a year, plants of 181 species sprouted, and of these plants, 12 types of submerged plants such as stonewort
were designated by the Environment Ministry as endangered species.
