The biological characteristics of the River Yamuna at Agra were studied in terms of Planktons. It was found that Yamuna waters have a distribution of planktons; phytoplanktonic forms (micro-flora) and zooplanktonic forms (micro-fauna), bottom and marginal fauna and fish fauna at different sampling stations. The microflora and microfauna have been described here. It was found that mostly the micro-flora is represented by the members of three main families of algae viz. Chlorophyceae, Myxophyceae and Bacillariophyceae in the Yamuna River waters at different sampling stations. The micro-fauna is represented by the planktonic forms of Protozoa, Rotifera and Crustaceans.
