In the present study, a total of 5 species of aquatic macrophytes were recorded from three urban ponds (P-1, P-2 and P-3) of Kolkata in West Bengal and were carried out for the months of January 2014 to June 2014. Different types of macrophytes were found in P-2 and P-3 during study period. But there was no macrophyte in the P-1 pond. The average macrophyte weight was the lowest in P-2 (3.925 kg/m2
) and the highest in P-3 (5.792 Kg/m2
) on wet weight basis and 391.66 and 718.95 g/m2
on dry weight basis, respectively. There were only five species of macrophytes encountered during the study period in different ponds. The major contribution to the total macrophytes spread was from Nymphoides spp
in P-2 and Eichornia spp.
in P-3. Other macrophytes contributed to the lesser extent. This study indicates that, aquatic macrophyte species are specific to the environmental quality.Pages: 256-258 | 851 Views 52 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
