|Abstract:||Examination of phytoplankton (September 1987) at 100 stations in Chilka lagoon revealed characteristic response gradients in species composition and abundance in relation to ambient water quality, particularly salinity. Altogether, 5 ecological zones could be distinguished in the study area each of which supported characteristic species of phytoplankton namely, Peridinium brevipes in zone I with relatively high salinity (av. 13.27 x 10-3); Oscillatoria limnetica (zone II, 6.99 x 10-3); O. limnetica and Stephanodiscus sp. (Zone III, 4.34 x 10-3) and Stephanodiscus sp. and Navicula sp. (zone IV, 1.24 x 10-3). In zone V, influenced by sea (salinity 6.32 x 10-3), in addition to several marine species, Stephanodiscus sp. occurred in large numbers.|
