    • Abstract


      The seasonal variations in the various categories of lipids have been investigated by dividing the year into five seasons, i.e. spring, summer, rains, autumn and winter. The data have been analysed by using student’st-test. Non-significant seasonal variations (p<0.05) are found when all the seasons are compared for total lipids, non-polar lipids, glycerides and unidentified lipids and the ratio of phospholipids and non-polar lipids. All the various lipid components and their ratios vary non-significantiy (p<0.05) in summer vs autumn, summer vs winter and autumn vs winter. Some lipid components vary significantly at different levels when seasons are compared. The significance of the results has been discussed.
