The present investigation deals with the study of seasonal variations of diversity of zooplankton in wardhannapet freshwater lake in Warangal district. The work was carried out for a period of one year from June 2019 to May 2020. The present study contained a total of 23 species of zooplankton belonging to four different groups of zooplanktons were identified in this study which include Rotifera, Cladocera, Copepoda and Ostracoda.11 species of rotifer, 5 species of cladocera, 4 species of copepod and 3 species of ostracoda. Rotifera group was found to be the most dominant among the other groups. The diversity and density of zooplankton species at wardhannapet freshwater lake during study period are as follows ? Rotifera greater thanCladocera greater thanCopepodagreater thanOstracoda. The various kinds of diversity indicate the Monthly and seasonal variation of zooplankton community and good quality of Lake Ecosystem. The total zooplankton population of this lake has Rotifera (45%), Cladocera (22%), Copepoda (18%) and Ostracoda (15%). Therefore it can be now concluded that this lake is highly potential to take up commercial fisheries.
