Aquatic plants are the one that have adapted to living in aquatic conditions (saltwater or freshwater). They are likewise alluded to as hydrophytes or macrophytes. A macrophyte is a sea-going plant that develops in or close water and is either emanant, submergent, or drifting, and incorporates helophytes. In lakes and streams macrophytes give cover to fish and substrate for amphibian spineless creatures, deliver oxygen, and go about as nourishment for some fish and natural life.
Aquatic plants require different changes for living submerged in water. The most widely recognized adjustment is aerenchyma, however floating leaves and finely dissected leaves are also normal. Aquatic plants can just develop in water or in soil that is for all time immersed with water. They are in this way a typical segment of wetlands.
