A Review on Diatom Flora and Cyanobacteria from Fresh Water

Amrita Koul | Rajeev Kumar [11]


Abstract: The Yamuna River is among the most significant rivers in northern India. This river, which was once the lifeline of the inhabitants of the region, hosts both plant and animals along its whole length, but freshwater vegetation is particularly important due to its place in the food chain. The majority of physicochemical characterization is used to measure water quality; Eutrophication and climate change, on the other hand, support the existence of dangerous Microcystins (MCs) producing cyanobacteria as a developing bio-indicator. This article's diatom floras and data provide a significant addition to modern taxonomic practise in these two key algal groups. Recent research on freshwater diatoms in diverse biological aspects has aided in the classification of these algae on a broad scale. Microalgal diversity/assemblage serves as a biological indicator of the environment of water bodies, and knowing the current level of quality of the Yamuna River is crucial for improving the water quality. This review examines the diversity of diatoms and the cyanobacterial elements of this river.
