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.

Jaccard similarity index for different planktonic groups of both the ponds Phytoplankton Zooplankton Chlorophyceae 0.

The fresh water Ostracoda Crustacea: In order to assess the various limnological characteristics of the ponds, their physico-chemical and planktonological analysis was carried out. Distribution and production of macrophytes in some water bodies of Kashmir. Among Zooplankton, Brachionus calyciflorusBrachionus falcatusCephlodella gibbaFilinia longisetaLecane closterocera of Rotifera; and Alona intermediate and Chydorus sphaericus of Cladocera were not recorded in pond 1, whereas, Vorticella sp.

The concentrated samples were examined under the inverted microscope and identification of plankton was done using the following taxonomic references [9- 21]. Present study is preliminary work on these two ponds which will provide the baseline data for the further studies. Showing sampling sites at both the selected ponds 4.

Jaccard similarity index for different planktonic groups of both the ponds. Study Area Both the selected ponds are situated at high altitude Himalayan region near Indo-Tibet boarder in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. Physico-chemical complexes occurring in the ponds were analysed which exhibit interesting interrelationships.

Most of the phytoplankton and zooplankton species recorded from both the water bodies are indicators of higher trophic status. Some relationship of phytoplankton to limnology and aquatic biology. Summer dissolved oxygen regimes in tropical Vindhyan Lake in relation to its conservation strategy.


Among phytoplankton, class Chlorophyceae showed its maximum dominance in both the selected ponds followed by Bacillariophyceae, Cyanophyceae, Euglenophyceae, Dinophyceae and Xanthophyceae table 5.

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

Species contribution of different planktonic groups in both the selected Pond. Hence qualitative and quantitative assessments of plankton are of great importance.

Zye limnologie der seen sudosttettlands. They are the most sensitive micro organisms that respond quickly to any change in the ecological condition. Phytoplankton ecology of the inland waters of Uttar Pradesh. American Fisheries Society,76, pp. 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.

The low transparency value in some of the high altitude Kashmir Himalayan water bodies has been attributed to the incoming silt from the catchment[]. Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology,B: Water analysis for limnologists.

Results and Discussion The physico-chemical environment trmple controls the biological diversity[23, ]. Water samples were directly collected from the surface of the pond for physico-chemical analysis and for the qualitative enumeration of planktonic population surface water samples were collected from different locations mainly from central part of the ponds.

Factors influencing Diaptomus distributions: A total species of phytoplankton and 51 species of zooplankton were encountered from both the ponds.


Kashmir University, Kashmir, Unpublished. Apart from primary production, phytoplankton play an important role as food lymnloogy 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.

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. Algal population in valley lakes of Kashmir Himalaya.

Raj NarayanKrishna K. During the present study a total of 39 and 40 zooplankton species were recorded from pond 1 and pond 2 respectively.

Phytoplankton from some lakes of northern Saskatchewan and from Great Salve Lake. Maximum planktonic diversity was observed nearby macrophytic vegetation in the Himalayan water bodies[36]. Present study is first hand work on these two small ponds which will provide the baseline data for the further studies.

Hence, they can be used as ecological indicators. On the basis of hardness values water of both the ponds is of hard water type. Limnological studies on dimictic Himalayan Lake. A guide to the study of fresh water biology. Some further studies required to establish temlle importance of various environmental factors lymnoloy are responsible for the growth of more planktonic species at higher altitudes.
