Abstract

The present study was undertaken to investigate the zooplankton diversity in Doddavoderahallilake through different months during the period of January 2010 to December 2010. The sample consists of moderate biodiversity of total zooplankton with 15 species belonging to four taxonomic groups. Out of 15 species 9 belonged to Rotifera, 4 to copepod, 1 to cladocera, and 1 to Ostracoda. Rotiferan species have showed a high magnitude of biodiversity in comparative to other zooplankton subgroups. The percentage dominance of Rotifers were 45.05%. The values of number of zooplankton species indicating the pattern of bio diversity have exhibited a different dominating trend of its major subgroups as given rotifera>copepoda>cladocera>Ostracoda. The present study aims at providing a preliminary knowledge on the productivity and diversity of zooplanktons which can be utilized during the formulation of management measures to improve the productivity of the lake.
