Ceratophyllum demersum L., a perennial plant of family Ceratophyllaceae (Arber, 2010), is an aquatic medicinal plant and it has been traditionally used in the human treatment such as ulcer, dysentery, wounds, fever (Taranhalli et al., 2011).
The aquatic macrophyte community in the oxbow is dominated by hornworth (Ceratophyllum demersum), Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum), P.
mesopotamicum lives in areas of still, shallow water, on mud or among submerged aquatic plants (Ceratophyllum sp.).
The GST activity was also increased in Danio rerio, Ceratophyllum demersum, and Daphnia magna after exposure to MC-LR within a relatively shorter time period ([approximately equal to]24 h) (Pflugmacher et al.

Chloranthaceae are one of five clades making up mesangiospenns, along with eudicots, magnoliids (in a restricted monophyletic sense, including Magnoliales, Laurales, Canellales, and Piperales), monocots, and the rootless aquatic genus Ceratophyllum. Since most ANITA groups (except the highly reduced Hydatellaceae in Nymphaeales: Saarela et al., 2007) have multi-parted flowers, it is most parsimonious to assume that the flowers of Chloranthaceae are reduced rather than primitively simple (Endress & Doyle, 2009; Doyle & Endress, 2011).

It was found, however that massive aquatic plants such as Potamogeton crispus, Ceratophyllum demersum and Vallisneria asiatica [12,13], and algae blooms increase the pH of water, which adversely affect the breading of mitten crabs [14].
