Ecological Value of Exotic Water Plants Equals that of Indigenous Species - If you look at the role of exotic water plants in an ecosystem, you won't find any significant differences compared to indigenous species. Researchers studied seven essential functions of water plants in experiments with indigenous and non-indigenous species. They looked among other things at the impact of the plants on the habitat and food supply of fish and small aquatic animals, on cyanobacterial growth and on greenhouse gas emissions. What they found was that all things considered, the two groups are not fundamentally different.
