Abstract—Phytoplankton diversity is an important criterion for evaluating the suitability of water for irrigation and drinking purposes. Phytoplankton composition of Chikkamalappanakere tank was studied for a period of six months from July to December 2013. During the period of investigation 45 species of phytoplankton representing five taxonomic groups such Chlorophyceae, Cyanophyceae, Euglenophyceae, Bacillariophyceae and Desmids were recorded. Relative abundance of phytoplankton in Chikkamalappanakere tank showed maximum of Cyanophyceae (31.1%), followed by Bacillariophyceae (24.4%), Chlorophyceae (20%), Euglenophyceae (13.3%) and Desmids (11.1%). Scenedesmus quadricauda and Merismopedia glauca were the common pollution indicators.
