Phytoplankton's Comparative Diversity of Karadi Kere Lake, H.D Kote Taluk of Mysuru
R. A. Manjunath
Abstract: Lakes are highly valued for their recreational, aesthetic and scenic qualities. Water content is one of the most treasured of our natural resources. This paper is an attempt to understand the biodiversity of phytoplankton in Karadi Kere Lake, H. D kote taluk of Mysore districts of Karnataka. Species richness, species dominance and species evenness have been stressed. The water in this lake is mainly used for irrigation and domestic purposes these human activities support abundant Cyanophyceae throughout the year. The soil types within the lake also differ considerably. Collection, identification and enumeration of the Cyanophyceae are as per the methods described by Hosmani (2010). Lackey (1938) and Suxena (1987). In the present study we observed very high population of phytoplanktons. Desmids, Myxophyceae, and Chlorococcales dominate the lake to a greater extent.
