By comparing the nitrification and denitrification intensity in sediments of different aquatic plant populations in Balihe Lake wetland, the main factors influencing sediment nitrification and denitrification intensity under different water depths as well as different aquatic plant populations were discussed. The results showed that the denitrification intensity in the sediments grown by phragmites australis, typha orientalis and nelumbo nucifera populations was mainly affected by the dissolved oxygen (DO) content. With the water depth increased, the DO content decreased and the denitrification intensity increased. The nitrification intensity was mainly affected by water temperature (WT), the higher the temperature was, the greater the nitrification intensity became. The sediment grown by phragmites australis, typha orientalis and nelumbo nucifera populations showed better TN removal efficiency in the wetland, at the 0.5 m water depth, the TN removal efficiency rank was phragmites australis > typha orientalis > nelumbo nucifera, when the water depth is larger (1 m), the removal efficiency rank was nelumbo nucifera > typha orientalis > phragmites australis.
