Question:
I would like to compare the oxygen production of aquatic plants versus terrestrial plants. Has research already been done in this area? Where can I access it. What would be the best procedure for measuring the output?


Replies:
I think that the two have been compared largely based upon plant growth (biomass accumulation over a period of time).
