Plankton are important part of aquatic life and good indicator of changes in water quality because they are strongly affected by environmental conditions and responds quickly to changes in environmental quality. Planktonic algae as indicators of lake type with special reference to the Desmidiaceae.

A theory of diatom periodicity.

Apart from primary production, phytoplankton play an important role as food for herbivorous animals and act as biological indicators of water quality in pollution studies while, zooplankton occupy a vital role in the trophic structure of an aquatic ecosystem and play a key role in the energy transfer. Alternative approach to trophic status classification for water quality management.

Some relationship of phytoplankton to limnology and aquatic biology. Among Phytoplankton, Elkatothrix sp. The Fresh Water Algae. Biology, conservation and management of Bhoj Wetland 1. The investigation indicated certain important complexes operating in the ecosystem. This optimum water temperature in both the ponds supports high biological population.

In Glimpses of Ecology,Eds. The ponds are infested with macrophytic lyymnology. Causes and consequences of recent freshwater invasions by saltwater animals. On the basis of hardness values water of both the ponds is of hard water type. Classwise percentage composition of Phytoplankton population in both the ponds.

Some further studies required to templee the importance of various environmental factors which are responsible for the growth of more planktonic species at higher altitudes. Plankton are considered indicators of the different trophic status of a water body because of their specific qualitative features and their capacity to reproduce in large number under environmental conditions that are favourable to them[3] and they used for pollution surveillance[4,].

Thesis, Kashmir University Unpublished. Composition of Phytoplankton Population of Badrinath pond. John Willey Sons Inc. Results and Discussion 5. Lymnollgy sampling sites at both the selected ponds. TDS value of ponfs and ppm for pond 1 and 2 respectively, indicate regular interference from respective catchment area.

Presence of various planktonic species and higher trophic status of both the ponds at high altitude showed the impact of high anthropogenic pressure as well as favourable environmental factors like temperature.

Each of these genus are known to indicate polluted waters[38]. Overall species composition of Phytoplankton and Zooplankton recorded from both the ponds.

Present study is first hand work on these two small ponds which will provide the baseline data for the further studies. Classwise percentage composition of Zooplankton population in both the ponds Figure 4. Lynnology Cladoceran, all the species listed in table 5 grow well in nutrient rich waters[7,36, 46].

Present study has been done on two high lmynology Himalayan ponds situated near the Badrinath temple, Uttarakhand India. Algal population in valley lakes of Kashmir Himalaya. Also, the impact of global warming on micro flora and fauna present in water bodies situated at high altitude has been discussed. Guide llymnology the identification of the mio-inverte -brates of the continental waters of the world,Vol.


Study Area Both the selected ponds are situated at high altitude Himalayan region near Indo-Tibet boarder in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand.

Conclusions The biological as well as physico-chemical result of both the ponds indicate the significant role of anthropogenic activity for growth of planktonic diversity and their distribution. Carbon Dioxide Search for additional papers on this topic. Some important feature of the selected ponds. But, during the present investigation Chlorophyceae was recorded as dominant among all the phytoplankton groups on account of relatively high temperature and nutrient condition.

Low transparency also indicates the eutrophic nature of pond waters[]. Note on the biochemical stratification in pond fisheries and their productivity. Generally, Bacillariophyceae are found as dominant group in temperate water bodies because diatoms are able to grow under the conditions of weak light and low temperature which are less suitable for the other phytoplankton groups[].

An ecological study of a garden pond containing pods zooplankton. Upper Lake Ecosystem in Bhopal. Overall species composition of Phytoplankton and Zooplankton recorded from both the ponds Table 5. Water quality and plankton of Jhelum River. But species recorded during present investigation are the classic indicators of a shift from oligotrophic Low productivity conditions to eutrophic High productivity conditions of both the ponds. Important physico-chemical characteristics the Ponds. Raj NarayanKrishna K.

Most dominant genus of phytoplankton encountered from both the ponds was Scenedesmus, Tetraedron, Cymbella, Gomphonema, Navicula, Nitzschia, Oscillatoria, Aphanocapsa, Euglena and Trachelomonas table 3. Showing of 45 references.
