  Phytoplankton being primary producers in an aquatic habitat play a key role in the production of fishes in water body. Besides a number of other important factors their abundance depends upon various water quality parameters. This study was conducted to assess the relationship between water quality parameters of Deg Nullah and phytoplankton. Physical and chemical parameters studied during the present study were pH, Temperature, Turbidity, Total dissolved solids, Alkalinity, Carbon dioxide, Dissolved oxygen and Hardness. Phytoplankton community was also studied and their relative abundance was estimated using standard techniques. Finally multiple regression models of the predominant species were developed in relation with above mentioned water quality parameters to asses the effect of these parameters on phytoplankton and the overall ecology of Deg Nullah upstream.

  The research work was conducted to investigate the serum antibody response againstListeria ivanoviiin experimentally infected rabbits by inoculation method. It was found out that the blood monocyte count was increased, from 2-3% (prior injection) up to 15% to 72 hours post injection and the count declined after 120 hours. There was a significant rise in mononuclear cells after the repetition of doses except that the level was maintained during these intervals. The highest antibody level was observed at 14-15 days post-inoculation, which persisted for more than three months. These findings suggest that an association exists between the increased number of monocytes in the blood and humoral immune response in correlation with the resistance against listeric infection.

  Different species of carp fishes have different rates of oxygen consumption which varies with the change in temperature. Oxygen consumption studies were carried out on fingerlings (seed) of Labeo rohita, Cirrhina mrigala, Catla catla, Hypophthalmicthys molitrix and Ctenopharyngiodon idella at four different temperatures i.e., 15, 20, 25, 30°C in laboratory conditions. Labeo rohita seems to be the most tolerant species having highest oxygen consumption rates and better survival at low available oxygen concentration in water. Catla catla (at 15 and 30°C) and Hypophthalmicthys molitrix (at 20°C and 25°C) are least tolerant species with highest oxygen consumption rates. Rate of oxygen consumption is greater in Labeo rohita at 15, 20 and 25°C but highest in Cirrhina mrigala at 30°C. Labeo rohita seems to be the most tolerant species having highest oxygen consumption rates and better survival at low available oxygen concentration in water. Ctenopharyngiodon idella and Cirrhina mrigala are moderately tolerant species among the fish species under study.
