Ecosystem, freshwater pond. Paakootukulam.
Macrophytes are one of the biological factors used to measure the state of the environment. The present study conducted at Paakootukulam, a freshwater pond in Kalkulam taluk of Kanyakumari District, documented 26 macrophytes, belonging to 18 families and 24 genera which were identified under 3 classes: Seven species of eight genera and seven families under the class dicotyledons, ten species of fourteen genera and eight families under the class monocotyledons and three species of three genera under three families under the class pteridophytes. The present paper clearly indicates the availability of invasive alien species and phytoremediation species. Evaluating the sustainable use of ecologically and environmentally valuable aquatic flora, their threat status and conservation strategies of the Paakootukulam freshwater ecosystem of Kanyakumari District, may pave way for the implementation of appropriate measures to be taken to reduce the continued habitat loss due to anthropogenic activities.
