Influence of physico-chemical parameters of water on the seasonal variations in algal bloom in dora beel, Assam, India

Jayati Das, Mautushi Das

Algae sometimes referred to as the phytoplanktons, inhibit the upper sunlit layer of almost all freshwater ecosystems and form part of the lentic system biota. They are a highly diverse group of organisms that have important functions in aquatic habitats. The present study was conducted to assess the relationship between physico-chemical parameters and phytoplankton assemblages of Dora beel of Assam, India. A data set of environmental parameters and algal bloom occurrence, density and composition was analyzed seasonally (i.e., monsoon, post-monsoon, winter and pre-monsoon). Statistical treatment of data between phytoplankton species and seasons and the water parameters and seasons in a year indicate that the phytoplankton cell count, diversity and distribution of phytoplankton in the Dora beel is influenced both by the variabilities of season and water parameters.
