STUDIES ON THE ASSESMENT OF POLLUTION IN WATER OF RIVER GANGAN BY AN ALGAL APPROARCH AROUND MORADABAD, (UTTAR PRADESH), INDIADesh Deepak and G.K. Sharma
Phytoplanktons are very important to maintain proper equilibrium between abiotic and biotic components of aquatic ecosystem. They are considered as the chief primary producers of natural ecosystem. Phytoplanktons add organic matter which is primary productivity in an ecosystem. Water is very essential component for every living organism. Algae are commonly found in surface water and considered as pioneer of an aquatic food chain. The algae have great significance in the biology of the aquatic ecosystem as they provide food for the organisms, especially for zooplankton. River Gangan receives almost all the domestic and industrial effluents of Moradabad city. The present study is an attempt to know the algal spectrum of river Gangan around the Moradabad, so that pollution level of river can be determined. The algal species were found indicative of organic pollution in river Gangan.
