    Author(s): Dar NA, Pandit AK and Ganai BADar NA, Pandit AK and Ganai BA

    The pigment content (Chlorophyll-a, Chlorophyll-b and Total Chlorophyll) of dominant macrophytes was investigated in this present study along with subsequent analysis of relevant physico-chemical variables. In this study, the relationship between the pigment content of dominant species and the ambient environmental parameters was established. In general, Chlorophyll-a, Chlorophyll-b and Total Chlorophyll contents varied from 1.5 ± 0.1 µg/ml to 3.7 ± 0.5 µg/ml, 0.3 ± 0.2 µg/ml to 1.7 ± 0.5 µg/ml and 2.1 ± 0.9 µg/ml to 4.1 ± 0.5 µg/ml respectively with highest values during summer coinciding with increasing water temperatures. Chlorophyll-a and Chlorophyll-b and Total Chlorophyll levels were positively correlated (P<0.05) with water temperature and negatively correlated with nutrient salts such as nitrate, .. View More»
