Dense, floating mats of E. crassipes and the subsequent build-up of organic detritus in the mat create an environment that supports the growth of emergent aquatic and terrestrial species, including woody species such as Salix spp. 2010. Although it is capable of producing dormant seeds, evidence suggests that E. crassipes will not establish a population in the Great Lakes region via sexual reproduction due to the lack of genetic diversity of the introduced populations and the lack of seeds found in the sediment where it has been introduced (Adebayo et al.

In Caohai and Dianchi lakes in Yunnan province, southwestern China, E. crassipes competed with native plants for water, nutrients, and space, and contributed to the reduction in native plant diversity (Jianqing et al. Preliminary Assessment of the Social, Economic and Environmental Impacts of Water Hyacinth in the Lake Victoria Basin and the Status of Control. Eichhornia crassipes is somewhat likely to be able to overwinter in the Great Lakes basin as rooted plants, which are more resistant to freezing temperatures than free floating mats (Owens and Madsen 1995). One acre of water-hyacinth can yearly deposit as much as 500 tons of rotting plant material on the bottom of a waterway. Australian Nutrient inputs to the Great Lakes from runoff may provide the necessary nitrogen and phosphorus levels for E. crassipes growth.

Non-native introduced amphipods such as Crangonyx floridanus were more abundant in E. crassipes stands than in the native pennywort stands, and are not frequently consumed by fish.

(2009) noted that N. eichhorniae was more effective at reducing E. crassipes growth than the mirid, which is in part due to the different feeding behaviors and life cycles of the two insects (N. eichhorniae is a stem-borer and has a 120-day life cycle, E. catarinensis feeds only on the leaves and has a 3-week life cycle). Canberra, Australia. This species rapidly grows and can double its biomass every 2 to 34 days (Gutiérrez et al. Eichhornia crassipes can double its population in as little as two weeks, creating an enormous amount of floating biomass (Penfound and Earle 1948).
