Aquatic Plants in Coventry Lake: Invasive & Non-Invasive

Plant

Lakes require aquatic plant life to maintain a healthy ecosystem. The plants that are native or natural to a lake aid in maintaining the correct ecosystem. Plants that are not native to a body of water are considered invasive. Invasive plants have a tendency to build colonies and spread rapidly. The addition of an invasive plant can cause an imbalance in the ecosystem of the lake and cause water quality and recreational problems.
