Ecological Study of Selected lentic Water Bodies of Ahmadabad, Gujarat India

Abstract

In ecology the environment of lakes is referred to as lacustrine. The lakes are quiet large bodies of fresh water usually deep enough that their beds lay much beyond the photosynthetic zone. Fluctuations in the lake level are because of climatic conditions and human water requirements. Lentic limnology refers specifically to still waters. For the present study four lakes were selected, which are located at Thaltej, Ambli, Makarba and Sola villages. Physical parameters include (air and water temperature and TDS) chemical parameters (pH, Do, BOD, COD, CL-, Ca+2, Mg+2) were analyzed during January 2010 to December -2010. During drought period the water level decreased and concentration of the most physico-chemical parameters were increased. Finely concluded that lakes water is not suitable for Drinking as well as irrigation purpose.
