Rooted aquatic plants, water, and substrate samples were obtained from nine farm ponds used for livestock watering. Analysis of variance and correlation coefficients were determined for all relationships among variables. Interspecific relationships were determined for plant species among ponds. There were significant differences among ponds with regard to 4 of the 12 water chemistry variables and 9 of the 10 substrate variables. There were no significant differences among plants and environmental variables. Chara species and Najas guadalupensis are independently associated and Echinodorus rostratus and Typha latifolia are positively associated. Significant correlation was found among five water chemistry variables and nine substrate variables. There were three correlation coefficients found to be significant between water chemistry and substrate variables.
