Seasonal succession and population dynamics of zooplankton communities is a well-documented phenomenon in an aquatic ecosystems. In this pretext, investigations on zooplankton diversity and density along with the interactive behaviour among various groups of zooplankton was carried out for a period of one year in unexplored and aesthetically important stream flowing through the heart of city. Qualitatively, 35 taxa of zooplankton belonging to 4 different groups viz. Protozoa, Rotifera, Copepoda and Cladocera were identified. Quantitatively, Protozoa showed dominance among the four groups indicating the deteriorating status of the water-body. Well-marked seasonal interaction among these groups were also witnessed in the present investigation.
