Abstract:
The present paper deals with the identification of 23 fresh water cyanobacterial species belonging to 14 genera from Sai river, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh (India). A total of 15 algal samples were collected from 5 different sites of Sai River in March 2013. In the present study Anabaena (5), Scytonema (2), Oscillatoria (3), Chroococcus (2), Gloeothece (1) and Lyngbya (2) were found to be the dominant forms, whereas Gloeotrichia (1), Microcystis (1), Aphanothece (1), Phormidium (1) were shown common occurrence and Spirulina (1), Gloecapsa (1), Cylindrospermum (1), Nostoc (1) were found rare. All these forms were reported for the first time from the study site.
