The nature reserve ponds are home to a few critically endangered water plant species: the water fern Salvinia Salvinia natans, the Yellow-floating Heart Nymphoides peltata, the white blooming Water Capltrop Trapa natans and the annual aquatic plant Brittle Waternymph Najas minor. An important community of deep water with Magnopotamion is a subject of protection in Poodří – a Site of European importance. Carnivorous Utricularia australis can be found in warmed shallows. This plant feeds on small water animals. Hard littorial vegetation, including the Common Cattail Typha latifolia, the Narrowleaf Cattail Typha angustifolia or the reed Phragmites australis, serves as a shelter for amphibians and as nesting places of water birds. Wood vegetation at pond dams is very diverse regarding its species and age.
