Abstract
Jaldhaka is a torrential and glacier feed river. A total 25 genera of phytoplankton belonged to 5 groups were reported during the survey period. Phytoplankton density and diversity indices were maximum in winter months and minimum in monsoon months. Water temperature and other physico-chemical parameters indicates good quality of water. Phytoplankton density and diversity indices positively correlated with dissolved water, total alkalinity, total hardness and chloride but inversely correlated with water temperature and free carbon dioxide.
