Hydrophytic plant diversity of aquatic body of Govindgarh lake in Rewa district (M.P.) India

Reenu Mishra and Neeta Singh
The Govindgarh lake is one of the unique water body in India and located in south of Rewa, district in Madhya Pradesh at a distance of 20 km. from Rewa, with a longitude 24°20’25” and latitude 81°15’20”. The dam is connected with all weather Rewa-Shahdol and Satna-Sidhi road. The dam was formed by impounding of small nalla originating from Kaimore hill. With a view to storing rain water, the Maharaja of Rewa at that time built a bandh across the nalla to form a tank in the year 1958. The shows that the lake is functioning as a carbon and nitrate removal system. Major untreated sewage influx is removed by the bio diversity of the lake. The present work was carried out from October 2020 to September 2021, it showed 70 species of aquatic plants belonging to 34 families. The dominant families were Asteraceae with 8 species followed by Poaceae with 6 species and 4 species each of Alismataceae and Lamiaceae. Based on the existence of aquatic plants in lake, 41 species were peripheral, 14 species were shore, 11 species were floating and 4 species were categorized as submerged. As per the IUCN status, 54 species were not assessed by IUCN and 16 species were under the least concern status out of the 70 species observed during the study period. The present study mainly deals with the identification, documentation and conservation needs of aquatic plants species in Govindgarh lake.
