Comments
EPPO Reporting Service (2013/203) / Cabomba caroliniana was found for the first time in Serbia in the canal Vrbas-Bezdan in August 2008 in various locations. In this canal, the species occurred sporadically in small, established populations with an average density of 42 stems per m² in Sombor. The species also occurred in Mali Stapar, and the species was found in very dense populations both upstream and downstream of the sluice gates, where average population density was 151 stems per m². Additional populations were found later in the canal Bečej-Bogojevo in Odžaci. In all these sites, C. caroliniana does not appear to be established as it does not survive the winter.
