Abstract: A Study on zooplankton species abundance and diversity of Nagulakunta water tank, Vinjapally, Karimnagar dist, Telangana, India was conducted to check the status in the area to provide new insights into its ecology. Samples were collected during January 2011to December2011. Total 22 Species were found in the water tank. Among these, Rotifers comprise of 8 species, Cladocera 7, Copepods 5, and Ostracods 1. Zooplankton diversity and abundance refers to variety within the community. Numerically rotifere was dominant group throughout the study period. Some of the dominant zooplanktons present in the month of January. The season wise zooplankton analysis showed an average abundance of species in winter, lower in July to October and maximum occurrence in November and January months due to the different environmental and inflow characteristics of the water body. The data collected so far, is being processed and discussed in the light of pollution status of the water tank.
