Studies on monthly variations in phytoplankton diversity of hot water spring Atri, Odisha, India.

Manoj Kumar Mohapatra*, A. K. Patra


Phytoplankton in Atri hot water Spring of Odisha investigated monthly basic from January 2012 to December 2013. Result revealed that diversity of species Chlorophyceae % whereas Cyanophyceae and Bacillariophyceae were composed. The physicochemical parameters such as water temperature, PH, total alkalinity, chloride and phosphate were significantly related to phytoplankton abundance
