Abstract

Subhabrata Ghosh, Sudhrita Pore Ghosh and Jai Prakash Keshri*

ABSTRACT

The study of phytoplankton diversity and community composition was studied by collecting water samples from a lentic water body of Burdwan, West Bengal, India between November 2012 to July 2013. A total number of 29 phytoplankton species belonging to Cyanophyceae (12), Bacillariophyceae (4), Euglenophyceae (3) and Chlorophyceae (10) were recorded from two collection spots (A and B) of the water body with less (A) or more (B) human interference respectively. These two specific collection spots were selected to compare the phytoplankton diversity and community structure of the water body of which one collection spot (B) with much more human interferences than the other (A). It was found that the stress of human interference reduces the phytoplankton diversity. Shannon Species Diversity value of collection spot A (3.096-3.951) and collection spot B (2.772-3.619) and species composition pattern also support the fact.

Keywords: Phytoplankton diversity, community composition, anthropogenic stress.
