A study was conducted to find out the biodiversity of aquatic weeds of haor areas, located in Karimgonj upazila under the district of Kishoregonj from July to December, 2012. A total of 10 weed species were identified from the haor. Among 3 common groups of weeds, 4 species of floating, 4 species of emergent and 2 species of submerged were collected. The major aquatic weeds found in Karimgonj haor include Eichhornia crassipes, Pistia stratiotes, Alternanthera philoxerodies, Azolla pinnata, Lemna minor, Hydrilla verticillata, Ipomea aquatica, Cartophyllum demersum, Aponogeton sp. and Ipomea carnea. Use of herbicide, fertilization, irrigation and siltation were the main causes for decreasing of aquatic weeds biodiversity. Various recommendations and measures have been suggested to improve the biodiversity of aquatic weeds of haor areas.Pages: 151-155 | 1100 Views 9 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
