    • Abstract


      Hydrobiological studies of two ponds and two lakes of Dharwad (Karnataka State) for one year showed highest biomass in the nutrient rich Laxman Singh pond. Devaragudihal lake was comparatively poor in nutrients and showed lowest phytoplankton biomass. Both Kyarakoppa pond and Nuggikeri lake did not exhibit significant difference with respect to physical and chemical factors and also standing crop of phytoplankton.
