PLANKTONIC PRODUCTIVITY IN THE ATER SHEETS OF THE INDIAN DESERT REVIEW

Sangeeta Modi and M.M. Saxena

Abstract

The paper reviews the status of planktonic productivity in the bodies of water falling in the Indian desert region. The productivity is found to be rich, comparable to benign regions of the country, sometimes exceedingly high. Per hour gross primary production is recorded to range from 0.375 to 0.876 g Cim'and net production from 0.111 to 0.701 gC/m3. Results of gross and net primary productivity are compared within the region and from other parts of the country for a number of water bodies. Morphometric and energy related phenomena are noted as more important influencing factors than the chemistry of water.
