Article
Full-text available
The purpose of this study was to evaluate total lipid content in 15 fresh water macrophytes belonging to four ecological groups and examining the possible variations between the studied periods. The samples were obtained from nine sites throughout the Wular lake, during March to December 2011, spelling four seasons with determinations of lipid cont...

As the run-of-river (RoR) hydropower projects remain understudied, we conducted this study to understand how these projects affect the hydro-chemical dynamics and water quality index (WQI) of the Sindh River in the Kashmir Himalayas. We used multivariate statistical techniques and WQI to identify the spatiotemporal dynamics of 18 physico-chemical p...

In the Egyptian deserts, new land reclamation projects have been recently established to meet the increasing-population growth rate and food demand. These projects mainly depend on the different groundwater aquifers. El-Farafra Oasis is one of the “1.5-million-feddan reclamation project” areas recently established in the Western Desert of Egypt whe...

Wetlands provide various valuable ecosystem services and play a significant role in water supplies, livelihoods, and irrigation of farmlands. Keeping in view the growing pollution and anthropogenic stresses on aquatic ecosystems, we assessed pollution sources in three urban wetlands of Srinagar, India. Environmetric techniques, such as two-way Anal...

With growing water scarcity, jeopardized by climate change, springs are likely to perform a vital role in meeting the domestic water demand in future. This paper examines the water quality status of Kashmir valley springs in relation to their geographical location, regional hydrogeological conditions, anthropogenic activities and climate change. We...
Article
The Run-of-River (RoR) hydropower projects change the natural flow regime and impact the ecology of the river ecosystem. Assumptions of eco-friendliness surrounding RoR hydropower plants have been rarely tested. Keeping this knowledge gap in view, the present study was undertaken to understand the impact of ROR power plants on the macroinvertebrate...
Article
Full-text available
This study describes the importance of multivariate techniques in evaluating the underlying mechanisms responsible for the spatial–temporal dynamics in physicochemical characteristics of a riverine ecosystem. Evaluation and assessment of physicochemical variables of Marusudar River, Chenab valley, and Northwestern Himalayas, India are very importan...
Article
Full-text available
We explored the spatial and temporal variations in the ecological characteristics of the macroinvertebrate community in relation to the environmental factors from the Vishav stream basin of Kashmir Himalaya from March 2013 to February 2015. We collected water quality and biological data from five locations within the stream basin. Integrated water...
Article
Full-text available
High altitude lakes (HALs) of Kashmir Himalaya are the important ecosystems in the mountain ecology of the broader Hindukush Himalayan region. This article provides a comprehensive information about the plankton (phytoplankton and periphyton) assemblages, water quality (WQ), bathymetry, morphometry, and land use land cover (LULC) of some select hig...
Article
Full-text available
Given the authoritative and well-documented publication records that crenic habitats support the substantial aquatic biodiversity, understanding of algal dynamics in response to anthropogenic and natural stressors in these crenic systems seems paramount. We sampled and monitored twelve freshwater springs for a period of 2 years from 2014 to 2015 to...
Article
Full-text available
The present study describes the water quality scenario of some freshwater springs of South Kashmir during the two-year period (2013-2015) because of rising pollution risks endangering water resources globally. The accessibility to quality drinking water has become a challenge and is receiving renewed attention. A total of 96 samples from twelve spr...

The outbreak of the deadly virus (novel coronavirus or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2) that emerged in December 2019, remained a controversial subject of intense speculations regarding its origin, became a worldwide health problem resulting in serious coronavirus disease 2019 (acronym COVID-19). The concern regarding this new viral...

Article
Full-text available
It is important to have reliable information on various natural and anthropogenic factors responsible for influencing and shaping stream water quality parameters as long as water resource conservation and management planning are concerned from the local to global scale. Daunting environmental pressures at multiple scales makes this necessity more p...

Full-text available
The assessment of water quality of the Dagwan stream encompassing spatiotemporal variations in physicochemical parameters and all important and relevant hydrological attributes was carried out at five different sites for a period of 1 year (June 2014–May 2015). Statistical techniques like analysis of variance (ANOVA), cluster analysis, and regressi...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents the interpretation of voluminous and complex dataset of Vishav stream, using different environmetric techniques, acquired during 1 year monitoring program of 21 parameters at five different sites. General linear regression model depicted better and higher positive and negative relationship among various analyzed water quality pa...
Article
Full-text available
Assessment of soil loss through Sediment Yield Index (SYI) is important for watershed planning, prioritization and development. In the absence of measured sediment data, SYI expressing the relative sediment yield from different micro-watersheds works out ideally for prioritizing watersheds for erosion control measures. An attempt has been made in t...

There are several factors influencing the water quality based on its usage. The quality of drinking water is of the vital concern for human health and life. The present investigation was aimed at assessing the water quality index (WQI) for Vishav stream carried out from March to August 2011. The water samples were analyzed for 11 core parameters vi...

Growing season changes in the organic matter, organic carbon and chlorophyll content of the two dominant macrophytes, Nymphoides peltatum and Ceratophyllum demersum of Wular Lake, a Ramsar Site in Kashmir Himalaya were analysed during March- November 2011. The content of organic matter and organic carbon for Nymphoides peltatum were 114.1 g m-2 and...

This study analyses a macroinvertebrate community survey for River Sindh and its tributary including Baltal, Yashmarg, Sonamarg and Thajwas Grar considering the extreme hydrological conditions linked with the seasonal low-flow period typical for some streams in this area. This study attempts to provide an overview of the macro invertebrate assembla...
