Mishra Vivek | Mishra Archana | Qureshi Parveen | Shah Fatima


Abstract: Climate change and its biological consequences are under way global impact of green house gases emission has caused a major biotic response and changes in physiology, penology and distribution of species are evidence of changes in biodiversity response to climate change. Fresh water eco systems are naturally sensitive to climate changes nutrient enrichment and pollution by human activities has increase the spread of a remarkable invasive species of aquatic leaf Ecchornia crasspies a troublesome water weed now present in all major water reservoirs, lakes, dams and river systems it has destroyed the flora and fauna of water bodies. The paper discusses the removal of water weed and its bio conversion ino a leaf protein concentrate which can be used as a potential protein source for humans and animals.
