Seasonal variation in zooplankton community and environmental variables of sacred Lake Prashar Himachal Pradesh, India


Author(s): Ramesh C Sharma and Rama Kumari

Abstract: In order to study the seasonal trends of zooplankton structure and community of the Prashar Lake, samples were collected in each month during one annual cycle (November 2014 to October 2015). A total of 27 genera of five zooplankton groups were identified during the study period. The zooplankton diversity belonging to five groups revealed 38% contribution of Rotifera followed by Cladocera (26%), Protozoa (25%), Copepoda (6%), and Ostrocoda (5%). The highest zooplankton abundance was observed in winter and the lowest in monsoon season. Among zooplankton, particularly Rotifera and Cladocera were the dominant groups throughout the study period. Maximum Shannon-Wiener diversity index was recorded at S2 compared to both S1 and S3. Correlation coefficients between physicochemical variables and zooplankton groups were calculated for assessing interrelationships using SPSS software.
