Aquatic plants have economic and environmental uses, depending on the natural characteristics. They proved to be the effective bioresources which are eco-friendly in nature. The floating aquatic hyper accumulating plants absorb or accumulate contaminants by their whole body. These commonly available economical plants have a lot of prophylactic and therapeutic properties for maintenance of good health and can also be exploited in the manufacture of drugs.
