Abstract:

The objectives of our research were to determine the influence of water physico chemical properties on phytoplankton population of two lake ecosystem (Kirumambakkam and Korkadu), Pondicherry region. Sulphate, Organic Carbon (OC), phosphate, sodium, potassium, DO, salinity and TDS were higher in Kirumamabakkam lake water samples. Ammonia, nitrate and BOD were higher in Korkadu lake water samples. During the study period 13 species of phytoplanktons were represented by diverse groups Chlorococcales (4), Volvvocales (3), Oscillatoriales (2), Euglenales (1), Nostocales (1) and Pennales (1). Population density ranged between 60 to 270 cells/l in Kirumamabakkam and Korkadu lakes. Closterium sp. was higher diversity in both lakes.


Keywords: Phytoplankton, Diversity, Lake ecosystem and physico-chemical properties.
