Abstract

Cyanobacteria of BaghJhoda pond in three different seasons hav been studied. A total of 8 cyanophycean algae under 6 genera viz., Anabaena, Aphanocapsa, Chroococcus, Oscillatoria, Phormidium and Spirulina were recorded. Anabaena, Oscillatoria and Phormidium were dominant genera and occurred in all three seasons.
