The blue green algal flora found in the paddy field of Jharkhand is comparatively poorly known. Only few workers described the blue green algae principality growing in water habitats. In this investigation total 68 taxa of blue green algae belonging to 20 genera viz., Microcystis, Aphanothece, Aphanocapsa, Gloeothece, Gloeocapsa, Merismopedia, Synechococcus, Arthrospira, Oscillatoria, Phormidium Lyngbya, Nostoc, Anabaena, Anabaenopsis, Cylindrospermum, Aulosira, Calothrix, Gloeotrichia, Rivularia, Scytonema have been listed, identified, recorded first time from the various places of Ranchi district.

The blue green algal flora found in the paddy field of Jharkhand is comparatively poorly known. Only few workers described the blue green algae principality growing in water habitats. In this investigation total 68 taxa of blue green algae belonging to 20 genera viz., Microcystis, Aphanothece, Aphanocapsa, Gloeothece, Gloeocapsa, Merismopedia, Synechococcus, Arthrospira, Oscillatoria, Phormidium Lyngbya, Nostoc, Anabaena, Anabaenopsis, Cylindrospermum, Aulosira, Calothrix, Gloeotrichia, Rivularia, Scytonema have been listed, identified, recorded first time from the various places of Ranchi district.
