About this book

Language: English

The plankton community is a heterogenous group of tiny plants (phytoplankton) and animais (zooplankton) adapted into live in marine as well as freshwaters. Plankton is the productive base of both freshwater and marine ecosystems, providing food for larger animals and indirectly for humans, so plankton constitutes the basic food source for any aquatic ecosystem, which supports fish and other aquatic animals. Phytoplankton may become increasingly important in space travel as a source
for food and gas exchange.

Freshwater Plankton and Macrophytes of lndia comprises three sections and the whole subject has been divided into nine chapters, which includes phytoplankton, zooplankton and macrophytes with their introduction, classification, adaptation methods for study, importance, key to identification and taxonomic description of species. The details should help the students as well as researchers to be thorough in collection and identification of different planktonic species. The number of references cited should be adequate to permit easy access to additional information.

This book will be of immense use to all those who study or teach aquatic ecology and hydrobiology. Not only this, the present book will also be helpful for students, research scholars, professors, scientists as well as limnologists.
