EXPERT ANSWER

, Meritnation Expert added an answer, on 8/3/13

Adaptive features of aquatic plants: 

  • The tissues of stems of aquatic plants are air filled (aerenchyma tissue) which helps the plant to stand firmly and steadily in the flow of water.
  • The outer surfaces of the plants are covered by cuticle to prevent excess water absorption.
  • Stomata are abundant as there is no point of retaining moisture inside the plant body.
  • Root system and water vascular system is not highly developed in aquatic plants as they can absorb water by each and every part of the body.
  • The leaves of aquatic plants like lotus are wide and flattened to absorb maximum amount of sunlight.
