Phytoplankton Diversity of Cauvery River in Erode, Tamil Nadu

Many places in Tamil Nadu depend on the Cauvery River for their water supply. The Erode district is heavily contaminated as a result of poor textile effluent management. The aim of this study was to examine the phytoplankton diversity of the Cauvery River in Erode, Tamil Nadu, India. Planktons are the marine ecosystem’s primary food source. One of the most important ecological metrics for assessing water quality is phytoplankton diversity. The aim of this study was to examine phytoplankton from July 2017 to June 2018, with the results being reported on a regular basis. The findings showed that Phytoplankton diversity is a good predictor for the river ecosystem and is affected by river water quality.
