Among the plants recognized by their phytoremediation potential we have the genus Typha that is commonly called toads, bulrush, tule, or bejuco, which has been recognized for its ability to evapotranspire groundwater, high growth rates, broad root zone, ability to bioaccumulate organic and inorganic contaminants, and tolerance to high and sometimes varied concentrations of contaminants [16-18].
The genus Typha is found all over the world in temperate and tropical zones.
