Abstract


A Study on periphyton diversity in Lotus ponds in the Lotus Museum, Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi, Pratumthani Province was carried out for 12 months between May 2011 to May 2012. The periphytic algae sampleswere collected from 2 sampling sites (Water lily pond and Jigantia pond). The forty-seven species in 6 divisions of periphytic algae (that attached to the lotus) and forty-five species in 6 divisions of periphytic algae (that attached to Hydrilla vercillata) were foundin the first sampling site.The fifty-two species in 6 divisions of benthic algae (attaching to the lotus) and forty-five species in 7 divisions of periphytic algae (that attached to Hydrilla vercillata) were found in the second sampling site. The dominant species of periphytic algae were Pseudanabaena galeata Böcher, Pseudanabaenalimnetica(Lemmemann) Komárek, Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii (Woloszynska) Seenayya & Subba Raju, Oscillatoria limosa C. Agardh ex Gomont, Chlorella sp., Cyclotella meneghiniana Kützing, Nitzschia palea (Kützing) W. Smith, Pseudanabaena sp.1and Gymnodinium sp.
