Aquatic plants species with examples of names and photos, features and development, structure

Our planet is covered with water more than half, and therefore there are aquatic plants. These include hydrophies attached to the roots to the bottom of the reservoir or pond, and moldophytes, which have no roots at all. The bright representative of the first species is Elodea, and the second is a bunch. Life in water provided plants with huge thin leaves, and sometimes the division of the leaf plate on areas that resemble threads. You can see these amazing plants in South America, Europe and on the territory of the former USSR.

Aquatic plants are a rather interesting part of the flora. It is difficult to adapt to life in the aquatic environment, but they managed to do it. In such plants, the root system is poorly developed, and they propagate vegetatively. There are even those that can be pollinated under a water thickness. In general, these are oneday, which birds like and sometimes go to livestock feed. Among them is Susak and water nuts. These representatives of the fauna help reservoirs selfclean, although sometimes harmful substances as Elodea can distinguish. Aquatic plants are great for breeding in the aquarium.
