Ravindra Rawal, S Ghaherwa


An attempt has been made to study the aquatic weeds and macropytes diversity in Kunda reservoir (District-Dhar) to understand the current status of this reservoir. Four sampling sites of Kunda reservoir were selected for present study. There are 21 species of aquatic weeds and macrophytes were identified which belongs to 15 family. The family Pontederiaceae, Lemnaceae were found to be dominant in the entire four studied site. This study helps to understand the health of aquatic system and also provide the raw material about this reservoir for further research.
