The utilization of terrestrial, aquatic and semiaquatic plants to remediate contaminated soil or
water is known as phytoremediation. This innovation has developed as a more practical, noninvasive,
and freely satisfactory approach to address the expulsion of ecological contaminants. Plants can be utilized
to aggregate inorganic and natural contaminants, to metabolize natural contaminants, and to energize
microbial load of natural contaminants in the root zone. This short review gives a knowledge into
phytoremediation of water bodies. It goes ahead to talk about phytoremediation as a ecofriendly purifying
device. The diverse phytoremediation systems, the procedures through which plants purify water
bodies and the nature of plants reasonable for phytoremediation are also analyzed besides other things.
Keywords: Contaminants, phytoremediation, plant, pollution, water bodies, metals.
