Abstract
In a recent survey work more than seventy microplanktonic Cyanobacteria and Chlorophyta have been recorded from different ecological niches like freshwater lotic and lentic pond, oligotrophic and eutrophic water body, shallow ditches and deep lakes etc. The recorded taxa were from 11 families of Cyanoprokaryota (Komarek, 1999,2005, 2013) viz. Aphanizomenonaceae, Borziaceae, Chroococcaceae, Coelosphaeriaceae, Leptolyngbyaceae, Merismopediaceae, Microcystaceae, Microcoleaceae, Nostocaceae, Pseudoanabaenaceae, Rivulariaceae. Similarly 11 families belonging to Chlorophyta were recorded, namely Chlorellaceae, Hydrodictyaceae, Oocystaceae, Radiococcaceae, Scenedesmaceae, Selenestraceae, Sphaerocystidaceae, Schizochlamydaceae, trebouxiophyceae incertae sedis, Neochloridaceae and Volvocaceae. Of these, two species Sphaerospermopsis aphanizomenoides and Volvulina steinii are from two genera that are reported for the first time from West Bengal.
