|Abstract:||Phytoplankton were collected from March 1988 to February, 1990 from four different stations in the Hugli estuary. Analyses such as relative abundance, dominance, richness, evenness indices and species diversity were made to detail the community organisation of the available phytoplankton. Maximum numbers of phytoplankton cells were observed between postmonsoon (SW) and early premonsoon months. Only two species, Coscinodiscus radiatus and Coscinodiscus excentricus out of 29 species dominated and they contributed > 50% to the total population. A significant negative correlation was observed between species diversity (HOBAR) and pollution index (R/Chl-a).|
