Family Pontederaceae - Overview, Botany and Ecological Consequences: A Case study in Haroti Region of Rajasthan

O. P. Sharma [6]

Abstract: This study provides a comprehensive overview of the Pontederiaceae family, focusing on its occurrence, adaptation, and impact within the wetlands of the Haroti region of Rajasthan, India. The Pontederiaceae is a small family of aquatic plants are prevalent in various wetland environments. The family Pontederiaceae is known as Pickerel - weed family. Through a detailed literature survey and field observations conducted between 2020 and 2022, this research examines the morphological and hydrophytic characteristics of these plants, their reproductive strategies, and their ecological impacts. The findings highlight the significant challenge posed by these aquatic weeds in terms of waterway obstruction and biodiversity loss, underscoring the need for effective management and conservation strategies to protect wetland ecosystems. This paper contributes to the understanding of aquatic angiosperms in Haroti region and emphasizes the importance of preserving these vital ecosystems amidst the challenges of invasive species.
