Physico-Chemical and Biological Analysis of Mantrala Lake, Hyderabad

Authors(2) :-Laxmi Poornima Chawhan, K. Shailaja

The present paper deals mainly with the study of physico-chemical and biological analysis of Mantrala lake, Hyderabad.Mantrala lake is situated at Hyderabad. Present paper deals mainly with the study of physico-chemical parameters conditions on the phytoplankton community in Mantrala lake. The present study on Mantrala lake, Hyderabad, Telangana was undertaken from December, 2013 to November, 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 phytoplankton belonging to Bacillariophyceae, Chlorophyceae, Cyanophyceae and Euglenophyceae were identified. A clear dominance of Cyanophyceae over Chlorophyceae, Euglenophyceae and Bacillariophyceae was observed throughout the study period. On the basis of both physico-chemical and biological parameters the lake is highly polluted and eutrophic.
