English: Reed beds are a natural habitat found in floodplains, waterlogged depressions and estuaries. Reed beds are part of a succession from young reed colonising open water or wet ground through a gradation of increasingly dry ground. As reed beds age, they build up a considerable litter layer which eventually rises above the water level, and ultimately provides opportunities for riparian scrub or woodland invasion.
  • Artificial reed beds are used as a phytoremediation technology and method for removing pollutants from grey water and contaminated runoff.
