Macrophytesare aquatic vascular plants, it also include liverworts, ferns,aquatic mosses, and larger macroalgae. Three types of macrophytes are recognized: free floating, submerged, and emergent .These macrophytes grow in an aquatic ecosystem and it perform numbers of important environmental functions like water purification, ground water level recharge, augment and maintain stream flow, recycling of nutrients and provide habitat for wide variety of flora and fauna. Macrophytes are important components of freshwater ecosystems because they enhance physical structure of habitat and biological complexity, which increase biodiversity within littoral zones. The Nagchoon Pond represented byvarious macrophytic species. The chemical analysis of some important macrophytic species and their observations recorded during both the study year .The chemical parameter like Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride, Nitrate, sulphate, and Phosphate studied for two different phases (Vegetative phase and Flowering phase) for life cycle of macrophytes.
