Adaptation of hydrophytes to its habitat.

  • Have broad leaves to increase surface area for transpiration.
  • Have numerous and large sized stomata
  • Flowers are held above water to enhance pollination.
  • Their root lack root hairs to minimize absorption of water
  • Have large aerenchyma tissues which gives them buoyancy.
  • Have reduced root system as they are supported by water.
  • Have poorly developed xylem vessel.
