Biodiversity Study of Order Chroocuccales of Blue-Green Algae of North Maharashtra of India.
Blue-Green algae a ubiquitous group of soil microorganisms are proved agricultural important particularly in tropical paddy field soils because of the capacity of some of these algae to synthesis organic substances & also to fix atmospheric nitrogen. Blue-Green algae played important role in the nitrogen economic of Indian Soils & their role in reclamation of user lands. In present taxonomical study of soil algae, emphasis is given on direct observation method of soil termed by Lund (1447). It means that soil algae were collected directly from all possible different sites of North Maharashtra region wherever soil algae growths were noiticed. The algal samples were collected in clean ploythene bags, labeled properly as well as possible algal samples were preserved in in clean polythene bags, labeled properly as well as possible algal samples were preserved in 4% formalin in collection bottles. In present study algal taxa of soil blue - green algae belonging to order Chroococcales were considered. The line drawings of algal taxa of order Chroococcales were made by camera lucida. Taxonomical identification of algal taxa was made with the help of experts, referring past records recent literature & standard monographs. In BGA the order chroococcales in comprised with 11 genera & 56 species. The genera and species of Chroococcales are Microcystis (3), Chroococcus (11), Gloeocapsa (16), Gloeothece (6), Aphanocapsa (5), Aphanotheceae (8), Synechococcus (1), Synechocystics (2), Gomphosphaeria (1), Merismopedia (2), Chlorogloea (1), The 11 species of Chroococcus and 16 species of Gleocapsa were dominant as compared to other species of Chroococcales, The order Chroococcales was dominat in class cyanophyceae by showing 56 species of 11 genera in present study.
