Abstract

•Reed and iris monocultures and a mixed community were tested in a constructed wetland.•Plants needed more than one year to remove nutrients and phytoplankton efficiently.•The Reed subunit (with Paspalum sp.) had the highest removal efficiencies.•Differences in vegetation structures drove a concrete selection of waterfowl.•Migratory, endangered shorebirds had low impact on solid resuspension.
