  title={The study of a specious invasive plant, water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes): achievements and challenges.},
  author={Gao Lei and Li Bo},
Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) originated in the state of Amazonas, Brazil, spread to other regions of South America, and was carried by humans throughout the tropics and sub_tropics. It is now widespread and recognized as one of the top ten weeds in the world. Water hyacinth has invaded Africa, Asia, North America and Oceania, occurs in at least 62 countries and causes extremely serious ecological, economic and social problems in regions between 40°N and 45°S. Water hyacinth forms dense… Expand
