Las llamadas universalmente "plantas acuaticas", tambien conocidas como macrofitas acuaticas o hidrofitas, corresponden a un conjunto de organismos vegetales que incluyen, en un sentido amplio, a las carofitas (Charophyta), musgos y hepaticas (Bryophyta), helechos y grupos afines (Pteridophyta), monocotiledoneas y dicotiledoneas (Magnoliophyta); sin embargo, los estudios floristicos de grandes regiones y paises, se enfocan frecuentemente a las fanerogamas o a las plantas vasculares.
