Effect of Physico-chemical Parameters conditions on the phytoplankton community in Shiva Sagar Lake, Vikarabad, Telangana

Authors(2) :-T. Sreelakshmi, K. Shailaja

Shiva Sagar Lake is situated at Shiva Reddy Peta village near Vikarabad town in Ranga Reddy which is about 70 kilometers from Hyderabad. It spreads an area of around 93 hectares of land and it is 50-100 meters depth. The present paper deals mainly with the study of physico-chemical parameters conditions on the phytoplankton community in Shiva Sagar Lake. The present study on Shiva Sagar Lake, Vikarabad, Telangana was undertaken from March 2014 to February 2015 to study abundance of phytoplankton and their relation with physico-chemical conditions of water. The various physico-chemical parameters like temperature, pH, carbonates, bicarbonates, chlorides, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, dissolved oxygen, nitrates, nitrites, phosphates and sulphates were analysed. A total of 54 phytoplanktons belonging to Bacillariophyceae, Chlorophyceae, Cyanophyceae and Euglenophyceae were identified. A clear dominance of Bacillariophyceae over Chlorophyceae, Cyanophyceae and Euglenophyceae was observed throughout the study period.
