Abstract:

The key physical, chemical and biological parameters of one of the major habitats for birds in the wetlands are known to influence flock of migratory and resident species of birds. The present study deals with the interactions between these abiotic factors and faunal diversity of pond in semiarid zone of Konthagai, Sivaganga district, Tamil Nadu. The study area was visited and surveyed twice in a month. During each visit waterfowl census was carried out and water samples were also collected to document changes in physico-chemical parameters and microbial analysis over the seasons. The aggregation of birds in the area is mainly related to the increase in migratory population of birds during winter. The variations inland bird aggregations as well as physico-chemical factors are discussed.


Keywords: Diversity,Abiotic factors, Konthagai, parameters,South India.
