Phragmites australis, the common reed, is a giant aquatic grass growing up to 5 meters high. It inhabits all continents in all climates. The rapid growth of the common reed often makes it an invasive plant that can quickly create large monospecific populations to the detriment of other aquatic plant species. However, Phragmite australis has remarkable filtration and water purification capacities for both bacteria and toxic metals. This makes it an essential species in the development of biological wastewater treatment plans.
