Algae Growth Inhibition by the Combination of Emergent Plant and Submerged Macrophytes
Inhibitory effects of the combination of submerged macrophytes and aquatic plants on the growth of algal community in Landscape water of Hefei city were evaluated. The nutrient reduction of the water through the aquatic plants adsorption was monitored. In the coexistence culture system of submerged macrophytes (Myriophyllum aquaticum and Elodea densa) and aquatic plants (Iris germanica L.、Purple Lythrum、Cyprus alternifolius、Canna lily), the combination of Myriophyllum aquaticum and Cyprus alternifolius can remove the NH4+-N, TN, meanwhile lower the chlorophyll and inhibited the growth of algae efficiently.
