Abstract

Present paper deals with the study of effect of sodium chloride on growth (chlorophyll a) in 10 species of 5 genera of Nostocaceae, Nostocales, organisms include Nostoc (3), Anabaena (3), Wollea (1), Cylindrospermum (2) and Aulosira (1).  All these species were grown in different concentrations sodium chloride (0.05M, 0.1OM, 0.15M, 0.2OM, 0.25M) and results were expressed in terms of chlorophyll-a. On the basis of observations it has been concluded that Aulosira was the most tolerant followed by WolleaNostoc and Anabaena while Cylindrospermum was most susceptible.

Keywords: Blue-green algae, Blue-green algaediazotrophic, diazotrophic, rice fields, sodium chloride, tolerance.
