Abstract

A study on zooplankton distribution and abundance of Pandu Lake, Bodhan, Telangana, India was conducted during August 2002 to July 2004 to check its trophic status and provide new insights into its ecology. In the Pandu lake the pattern of zooplankton abundance was Rotifera > Ostracoda > Copepoda > Diptera> Cladocera. Among all the zooplankton, rotifers exhibited maximum diversity and population density throughout the study period. Results indicated the eutrophic nature of Pandu Lake.
