Seasonal variation in the energy content of benthic macro invertebrates of lake nainital uttar pradesh india

Seasonal variation in the energy contents of 4 macrobenthic invertebrates of Lake Nainital during 1977-1978 is discussed. The energy values varied from 16,971-19,437 J/g dry weight in Tubifex tubifex, 16,511-20,231 J/g dry weight in Glossiphonia weberi, 19,019-25,289 J/g dry weight in Chironomus plumosus and 19,583-20,549 J/g dry weight in Viviparus bengalensis. The former 2 genera exhibited highest energy contents during summer; the latter 2 revealed highest values during winter. On a mean annual basis, the highest values were recorded for C. plumosus and lowest for T. tubifex. In V. bengalensis, variation occurred in the ash fraction (%) and in energy values (joule per gram dry weight) but not in energy values of the organic fraction (joule per gram ash-free dry weight), while the other 3 genera displayed variation in all 3 variables.
