Abstract

The present study reveals diversity of zooplankton. The lake Komaram Bem is situated at Utnoor town of Adilabad district. The investigation period from Sep 2011-Aug 2012. Zooplankton were examined quantitatively with stranded identification methods. Zooplankton species showed variations in their abundance from one month to another month the result showed that a total of 17 genera were recorded of which 9 were Rotifer, copepod 3, Cladoceran 3 and Ostracod 2. The present study revealed percentage wise composition of Rotifer 40.01%, copepod 29.8%, Cladocera 26.14%, Ostracod 3.9%. Shannon –winner index values ranges (2.013-2.167) Simpson index values ranges (0.2379- 0.2207 ) Dominance index values ranges (0.7391-0.7793) Evenness index values ranges (0.916-0.9864). Maximum population density of Rotifer (102number/lit), copepod (140 number/lit), cladocera (142 number/lit), ostracod (10number/lit), were recorded at winter season and minimum Rotifer (46 number/lit), copepod (31 number/lit), cladocera (15 number/lit), and ostracod (9 number/lit), were recorded at summer season. Avoid the pollution cause substrences into the lake and there of pre-treatment plant should be immediately installed for better management of lake ecosystem.
