Monitoring water body: Seasonal variations in Density and Species Richness of Euglenophyta of Yashwant Lake,Toranmal (M.S.) India.

Authors(1) :-Ashok P. Ekhande

The density of Euglenophyta shows significant seasonal variations, it was maximum in post-monsoon, while it was minimum in winter. Maximum species richness of Euglenophyta was recorded in postmonsoon, while minimum species richness was recorded in summer at Yashwant lake Toranmal. The Euglenophyta structure depends on a variety of environmental factors that include biotic as well as various abiotic factors. The Pearson correlation was calculated by keeping Euglenophyta as dependent variable while biotic and abiotic factors as independent variables.
