S. A. Manjare
Abstract: The present attempt has made to study qualitative and quantitative base of phytoplankton from Laxmiwadi tank situated in the Hatkanangle tahsil of Kolhapur district, Maharashtra, India. The study revealed that total 12 species of phytoplankton resides in the tank. Out of 12 species, 5 were belonging to chlorophyceae, 4 were belonging to Bascillariophyceae and 3 were belonging to Myxophyceae. Based on the qualitative analysis, Chlorophyceae was dominant group among all. Quantitative analysis of phytoplankton showed monthly variation in the total number of organisms. However, the highest number was noted during the months of winter season while lowest during monsoon season. The percent composition of phytoplankton revealed that Chlorophyceae members were dominant over both the years.
