WATER HYACINTH AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO NUTRIENTS
Although there are several factors that enable and facilitate the rapid spread of certain EEIs, in the case of water hyacinth and other plant species such as water fern, Mexican water lily, etc., it is important to note the presence of a high content of nutrients in the water and sludge of the Guadiana, especially in its Extremadura section. This abundance of nutrients is the basis of the food of this group of EEIs, so that once they are extended it is very difficult to eradicate them or to control them completely if there is no action to reduce the presence of so many nutrients in the river in the long run.
