Hence qualitative and quantitative studies of zooplankton are of great ecological importance. The Santoshi Mata Talab of Satna city was selected as a one of study site for the present study. This talab is a major source of drinking water for the nearby population and also utilized for pisciculture, washing of vehicles, cattles, cloths and disposal of domestic sewage and ash of dead bodies.
