Fauna of India and adjacent countries. The Fresh Water Algae. Material and Methods Physico-chemical analysis of water samples was carried out following the standard methods as given in[].

Limnological Study on two High Altitude Himalayan Ponds, Badrinath, Uttarakhand

Most dominant genus of phytoplankton encountered from both the ponds was Scenedesmus, Tetraedron, Cymbella, Gomphonema, Navicula, Nitzschia, Oscillatoria, Aphanocapsa, Euglena and Trachelomonas table 3. Jaccard similarity index for different planktonic groups of both the ponds Phytoplankton Zooplankton Chlorophyceae 0. Biology, conservation and management of Bhoj Wetland 1.

Carbon Dioxide Oxygen inorganic phosphate Sodium. Introduction The aquatic habitats situated in mountains are some of the most sensitive indicators of environmental change[1].


Citations Publications citing this paper. Both the ponds are situated at base of high mountains and during the high precipitation the nutrient rich runoff settled in the ponds and increased the trophic levels and creates the favourable conditions for the growth of planktonic population.

Distribution and production of macrophytes in some water tempoe of Kashmir. Assessment of pollution indicators in Indian rotatoria. Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment,6: Besides the anthropogenic pressure, impact of global climate changes also supports the microscopic life to grow in aquatic systems situated at higher altitude.

Some relationship of phytoplankton to limnology and aquatic biology.

Showing sampling sites at both the selected ponds 4. The ponds studied, differed substantially in the degree of organic pollution.

Plankton are very significant tool for observing the continuous changes in the tmple conditions at higher altitudes.

This optimum water temperature in both the ponds supports high biological population. Their high elevation leads to increased exposure to ultraviolet radiation as well as a shortened growing season that aggravates plankton populations lymnooogy to both temperature and light limitations[2].

Raj NarayanKrishna K. Generally, Bacillariophyceae are found as dominant group in temperate water bodies because te,ple are able to grow under the conditions of weak light and low temperature which are less suitable for the other phytoplankton groups[]. Phenolphthalein alkalinity was absent in both the ponds.

The location and important features of both the ponds have been mentioned in Table 1 and Figure 1. During the present pknds of investigation, a total of and phytoplankton species have been recorded from pond 1 and pond 2 respectively table 3.

A guide to the study of fresh water biology. They are the most sensitive micro organisms that respond quickly to any change in the ecological condition. Physico-chemical complexes occurring in the ponds were analysed which exhibit interesting interrelationships. Classwise percentage composition of Zooplankton population in both the ponds.
