Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out on Waskura lake, Kashmir. The focal objective of the study was to evaluate the quantitative characters of the aquatic macrophytes viz., frequency, density abundance, relative frequency, relative density, relative abundance and importance value index (IVI). The study was carried out for a period of one year (2017-2018). During the present study a total of 13 aquatic macrophytes belonging to 12 different families which include six submerged, five rooted with floating leaves and two submerged species were found. Overall, emergent vegetation were dominant throughout the lake while rooted and submerged macrophytes showed the moderate abundance. The dominance pattern of macrophytes was recorded inorder of submerged>floating>emergents.
