Abstract

The present attempt is to analyze the role of aquatic biodiversity i.e. macro flora in maintaining the status of the Aruvikkara reservoir. The variety and distribution patterns of macrophytes of inland water bodies are of current interest in studies on global biodiversity conservation. In the present paper the angiospermic plants in the Aruvikkara reservoir of Thiruvananthapuram District, Kerala, India has been considered. The study revealed the presence of 15 species of aquatic plants in the reservoir. The dominant macrophytes Nymphoides indica and Nelumbium speciosum were spread throughout the water surface.
