crassipes (Mart.) Solms is characterized by being a free floating aquatic plant, native of South America, belonging to the monocotyledonous class, Pontederidaceae family, Pontederiales order (Esteves, 1998), and by being an angiosperm with perennial life cycle (Bortolotto and Guarim Neto, 2005).
According to a statement from the Ministry of Irrigation and Water Resources, the meetings of the committee address also the budget of the High Dam and the other dams in Sudan, as well as countering the Eichhornia
[14.] Yongo E, Outa N, Ngodhe SO (2017) Effects of Water hyacinth (Eichhornia
crassipes Solm) Infestation on water quality, fish species diversity and abundance in the Nyanza Gulf of Lake Victoria, Kenya.
Water hyacinth (Eichhornia
crassipes) is an exotic invasive plant species that occurs as mats on the surface of freshwater bodies .
Aquatic plants like Eichhornia
crassipes, Azolla filiculoides, Pistia stratiotes, Hydrilla verticillata, Typha domingensis, Salvinia Cucullata, Azolla caroliniana, Azolla pinnata, Lemna minor, Lemna aequinoctialis, Lemna gibba, and Spirodela polyrhiza are suitable aquatic plants for the removal of heavy metals as reported by several researchers [21-27].
crassipes, has well-established root, considered as the suitable option for phytoremediation in the aquatic ecosystems for heavy metals and wastewater remediation than terrestrial plants as their rapid growth and significant biomass processing supports higher pollution uptake and better purification method due to direct contact with the water column.
Aquatic macrophytes were placed, water hyacinth (Eichhornia
crassipes) and water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes) in a proportion of 1: 1 in the tanks covering half of the surface, using wires fixed to the edges to delimit this space.
