The present investigation of Ecological Studies on Phytoplankton in Aloor Perculation lake from Rural Area of Omerga Taluka (M.S.) India. The work was carried out during a year June 2021 to May 2022.Location of Aloor Perculation lake 76°-25 Longitude and 17°-20 Latitude. It's manmade earthen lake having Maximum height 11.99m. it's catchment area 12.69 Sq.Kms. and capacity of live storage 9.29 mm3 Lake is constructed year of completion 1972. The Aloor Perculation lake distance from omerga to dam about 65Km. Phytoplankton are ecologically significant as they trap radiant energy of sunlight and convert into chemical energy. In the present investigation there are 17 species of phytoplankton s belonging four different group such as Chlorophyceae (06), Bacillariophyceae (05), Cyanophyceae (04), and Euglenophyceae (02) species were found in Aloor Perculation lake.
