It has been seen that aquatic plants play a transcendent role in the conservation of ecosystems, they accelerate the mineralization of excreta from animals and decaying vegetation, oxygenate water, offer hiding places for vulnerable species, accommodate specific microbiological organisms that serve as food for other species. These organisms contribute to keep the water odorless and colorless; they keep non-proliferation of harmful microbiological agents that can be damaging for the biota already established.

Some examples of plants that meet the characteristics mentioned are the Limnophila sessiliflora, the aquatic fern the Salvinia and the Pontederia cordata.
