The present paper deals with the study of seasonal diversity of algae from the Jawahar water tank. During the study period of one year, 31 species of algae were identified belonging to five major classes such as Cyanophyceae, Chlorophyceae, Bacillariophyceae, Euglenophyceae and Dinophyceae .The maximum algal diversity was found in the Summer season and maximum members were of Bacillariophyceae while minimum of Dinophyceae. Some pollution indicating algal species were noticed as, Oscillatoria, Pandorina, Euglena, Phacus, Synedra and Melosira. Therefore it is concluded that, the Jawaharlal water tank was slightly polluted in nature. The maximum algal diversity was found in early spring and summer season. The diversity indices show that there is an urgent need of monitoring of the studied tank to check water quality and its maintenance.

Key words : Algal diversity, Jawahar water tank Karnatak
