Biodiversity of aquatic and semi-aquatic plants constitutes an integral component of any aquatic ecosystem. They serve as a source of food and shelter for the aquatic fauna, thus forming the base of aquatic wildlife conservation practices.

An account of diversity of aquatic plants is necessary for preventing and maintaining excessive erosion, turbidity of water, and source of oxygen for respiration and provides protection against hot and cold weather to aquatic fauna.
