English term or phrase: water hiesons
The plants that you really want to stay away from are WATER HIESONS, hydrilla, cattails, and especially elephant ears along the pond bank.

Only 'water hiesons', please.

Thanks!

Spanish translation:camalote / jacinto de agua
Explanation:
The only idea I can come up with is that it might be a typo for "water hyacinth", which often comes up with the other species mentioned.
That would be "jacinto de agua" or "camalote"

Frequency that plant species occur in 10 evenly spaced transects around the lake.

Water hyacinth is a floating plant that occurs in lakes, ponds, canals and other freshwater bodies. Water hyacinth forms thick mats on the surface of the water which is detrimental to all the life forms. Hyacinth has leathery, round leaves connected to a sponge like stalk. Water hyacinth has stringy black roots and are also capable of rooting in mud temporarily. The reproduction system of hyacinth is vast, however it primarily perpetuates through seed production.

Eichhornia is native to South America (Most likely from Brazil.). Origin in the United States may date back as far as 1884. This weed has recently spread throughout the Southern United States.

neutral  Luisa Ramos, CT: Encontré una referencia específica y no son jacintos. Yo también pensé que podría ser aunque mal escrito, pero parece que no. Se llama river grass y crece en las riberas. El jacinto crece en el agua. Sí que está difícil. Hay que seguir investigando.

  -> Es interesante, porque evidentemente el camalote no tiene nada que ver con una gramínea. Sin embargo tampoco parece demasiado confiable la orgografía del sitio, entre otras cosas. Igual es una posibilidad. ¡Qué difícil!
