Assessment of trophic status and aquatic insect diversity of Kaliasot River

Author(s):

Mehnaza Rashid and Pragya Shrivastava

Abstract:

An assessment was made to accesses the trophic status and aquatic insect diversity of the kaliasot river. During the present study the results documented higher values in physico-chemical parameters. The river was categorized as alkaliphilous and alkaline with pH (x̅ = 7.9 units). On the basis of average values observed for electrical conductivity (x̅ =301.7 µScm-1) the water body falls under Mesotrophic condition. Higher average alkalinity values (75.3 mgl-1) categorizes the water body as nutritionally rich. Increased average nitrate content puts the water body into the eutrophic condition. The overall study predicts the eutrophic nature of Kaliasot River. A total of 29 genera of aquatic insects belonging to 5 orders were recorded from the kaliasot during the present study.
