Plankton Diversity and Density in Pariyat River, Rural Area of Jabalpur (M.P.)
Abstract: The present study was carried out on Pariyat River of Pariyat Village. Pariyat village Is situated in Kundam Tehsil of Jabalpur District, M. P. state. Pariyat village is 20 km. far from its district place Jabalpur. Current population of Pariyat village is about 15000. Pariyat lake is situated on western side of the village. The plankton were collected counted and were identified by using the method suggested by APHA (1995) Present (1970) and FRESH WATER BIOLOGY (W. T. EDMONDSON-1959). The plankton were counted by using Sedwick Rafter counting cell. Different class such cyanphyceae, chlorophyceae, bacillariophyceae, euglenophyceae, cilliata, cledocera, copepod and specimens from phylum rotifera were identified during the study. Among all these classes the listed phytoplankton such as Oscillatoria Sp. , Tetraedron Sp. , Navicula Sp. , Nitzschia Sp. , Euglena Sp. , and zooplankton such as Ceriodaphnia Sp. , Cyclops Sp. , Tropocyclops Sp. , Brachionus Sp. and Platias Sp. were recorded as a dominant genera in Pariyat Lake. The study was carried out monthly but was tabulated seasonally by using statistical method.
