Rotifer diversity of Girda temple ponds from Buldana district, Maharashtra
Very little work is done on temple tanks in Maharashtra state, particularly in Buldana district. A Girda Temple pond has unique place in mythology as well as a distinct aquatic ecosystem. The present investigation was carried out on zooplanktons during Sept.2014 to Nov 2015. Various types of zooplanktons were noticed among them rotifers were dominant than others. We have observed at about 09 genera of rotifers. The density of Brachionus sp. was maximum whereas Philodina was least. The variation in density and diversity of rotifers are in line with human disturbances, physico-chemical parameters as well as morphometry of water body.
