Ecological observation on the seasonal diversity and succession of algal bloom in a lentic water body in Assam, India


Jayati Das, Mautushi Das

Phytoplanktons are a highly diverse group of organisms that inhibit the upper sunlit layer of almost all freshwater ecosystems and form an important part of the lentic system biota. The present study was conducted to investigate the seasonal species diversity and succession of phytoplanktons in algal bloom in Garjan beel, Assam. The study was performed during 2020-2021 and samples were collected seasonally. The results indicate that there are changes in phytoplankton groups in the study site which are influenced by temporal variations observed during these two seasons and the possible anthropogenic activities around the area. These seasonal changes indicate the importance of short-term and long term observations of the beel for understanding the variation in phytoplankton groups in a lentic ecosystem. The cyanophyceae were dominant both during winter and pre-monsoon season. Chlorophyceae occured in pre-monsoon season.
