Australian Standard for Aquatic Plant Names AS 5301-2020

This standard prescribes an approved standard name for each species of aquatic plant commercially traded in Australia.

For the purpose of this standard, aquatic plants are defined as plants used commercially as a source of food, therapeutics derivatives and additives, that naturally require saltwater or freshwater habitats for growth.

The development of an Australian Standard for Aquatic Plant Names is supported by funding from the FRDC on behalf of the Australian Government
