Describes the problem of invasive aquatic and wetland plants in general before discussing such specific examples as the giant reed, purple loosestrife, and the giant salvinia, concluding with a look at methods of dealing with the issue.

Facts on File
Aquatic systems are some of the most biologically diverse; however, invasive plants that grow in these areas challenge this diversity. For example, purple loosestrife, a herbaceous perennial, is the equivalent of biological pavement when it invades a wetland by displacing all native species and creating a stand so dense ducks can no longer use it to breed. Invasive Aquatic and Wetland Plants details the competitive strategies of destructive plants in these inaccessible areas, as well as the latest techniques being used for their control.
