Plankton are very significant tool for observing the continuous changes in the environmental conditions at higher altitudes. Freshwater zooplankton of India. Presence of various planktonic species and higher trophic status of both the ponds at high altitude showed the impact of high anthropogenic pressure as well as favourable environmental factors like temperature. Apart lymnlogy primary production, phytoplankton play an important role as food for herbivorous animals and act as biological indicators of water quality in pollution studies while, zooplankton occupy a vital role in the trophic structure of an aquatic ecosystem and play a key role in the energy transfer.

These species are indicators of higher trophic status by[24, 27, 47 lymnllogy. Plankton are important part of aquatic life and good indicator of changes in water quality because they are strongly affected by environmental conditions and responds quickly to changes in environmental quality.

Species contribution of different planktonic groups in both the selected Pond. Water samples were directly collected from the surface of the pond for physico-chemical analysis and for the qualitative enumeration of planktonic population surface water samples were collected from different locations mainly from central part of the ponds. A total species of phytoplankton and 51 species of zooplankton were encountered from both the ponds.

Raj NarayanKrishna K. Besides physico-chemical features, observations on changes in planktonic diversity are generally considered a necessity in evaluating the impact of environmental changes on an aquatic system, especially phytoplankton that show changes with the changes in the environmental factors[35].

Physico-chemical complexes occurring in the ponds were analysed which exhibit interesting interrelationships. Generally, Bacillariophyceae are found as dominant group in temperate water bodies because diatoms are able to grow under the conditions of weak light and low temperature which are less suitable for the other phytoplankton groups[].
