Phul Kunwar Singh Rana
The existing study used to be to recognize the diversity and distribution pattern of microalgae in fresh water system represented by using an open Malhania dam. A whole of 73 species of phytoplanktons have been recognized from distinctive corporations at some point of March 2018 to February 2019. Among the identified phytoplankton species Cyanophyceae (36.99%) fashioned the dominant group, observed by means of Chlorophyceae (38.36%), Bacillariophyceae (19.17%) and Euglenophyceae (5.48%). The fluctuations in the physico-chemical parameters like pH, temperature, EC, DO, BOD, COD, turbidity, alkalinity, hardness, nitrate, silicate, phosphate and had been additionally been monitored. The result affords a primary documentation of the phytoplankton community and its variety and basic appreciation of hydrological variables in the pond ecosystem.
