Assessment of physico-chemical properties of pond water in relation to seasonal changes of algal floral composition at Balagarh, Hooghly in West Bengal, India
The usual changes of water physico-chemical properties from one season to another resulted in the formation and development of different algal species in a stagnant aquatic ecosystem (pond) located at Balagarh, Hooghly in West Bengal, India. The shifting of climatic conditions as well as water nutrients status probably triggered the variations in the algal floral diversities in the studied freshwater pond.
