TAXONOMIC STUDIES OF FRESH WATER ALGAE FROM CHISHTIAN CITY, DISTRICT BHAWALNAGAR
PLANT CELL BIOTECHNOLOGY AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY,
Chishtian city was being explored for the collection of fresh water algae in the present study and for those purpose 12 samples of fresh algae from different areas was being collected. From those samples total 28 species was being collected that belong to 16 genera, 11 families, 7 orders and total 4 phylum including, Cyanophycota, Volvocophycota, Bacillariophycota and Chlorophycota. Those samples were being collected from September 2019 to December 2019. After they were classified and identified taxonomically upto species level by using Shameel classification [25,26]. Those 28 species that are being obtained in the total research work: Kingdom Monera has been acknowledged with phylum one; Cyanophycota that omits two classes, two orders, two families four genera and eight species that were following; Chroococus turgidus, Merismopedia punctate, Oscillatoria rubescens, O. priencp, O. tenuis, O. ornate, Spirulina gigantea and Arthospira platensis. Kingdom Protista has been identified with two phylum; Volvocophycota and Bacillariophycota with three classes, four orders, eight families, 11 genera and 18 species which were following; Hydrodictyon reticulatum, Scenedesmus armatus, S. dimorphus, S. bijuga, Cosmerium botrytis, C. microsphinctum, C. pseudopyramiolatum, Closterium turgidum, Fragilaria ulna, F. crotonensis, Ghomphonemia ghosea, Navicula exigua, Nitzschia acicularis, Gyrosigma acuminatum, G. scalproides, Cymbella ventricosa, Cyclotella operculata, C. meneghiniana. Kingdom protoctista have one phylum; Chlorophycota that have 1 class, one order, one family and two species that are following, Spirogyra pratensis and S. acquinoctialis.
