PLANKTON DIVERSITY IN KALIASOTE RESERVOIR, BHOPAL (INDIA)Monika Dubey, Aunj Kumar Tiwari, Susan Manoher and Nemi Chand Ujjania
In the present paper plankton diversity in Kaliasote Reservoir is described. This small sized perianal water body is situated 230 1150N latitude and 770 24 30" E longitudes which is 12 km away from Bhopal (Madhya Parades). The water samples were collected during the June 2006 to November 2006 from 5 preselected sampling stations for the quantitative and qualitative estimation of phytoplankton and zooplankton. Result were depicted that among the phytoplankton, Chlorophyceae 39% (200-4850 cell/l) was dominated group followed by Cyanophyceae 32% (290-4600 cell/l) and Bacillariophyceae 29% (200-4000 cell/l) while among the zooplankton, Cladocera 36% (60-450 org/l) was dominated group followed Protozoa 35% (60-400 org/ l) and Rotifers 29% (67-370 org/l). The result indicates the abundance of planktons (phytoplankton and zooplankton) and high level of primary energy which is subjected to sustainably development of reservoir utility.
