Plants of the littoral zone

Two types of plants occur here:

  • Non-rooted phytoplanktons which include all kinds of algae occurring in the limnetic as well as those found only here. Certain species of green algae, blue green algae and diatoms remain attached to plant surfaces and are collectively called periphyton
