Effect of Fly Ash on Survival of Rhizoclonium Hieroglyphicum


Fly ash is hazardous to organism and had adverse effect on the survival of Rhizoclonium hieroglyphicum. The alga could not survive in presence of fly ash, as its chlorophyll content at 1000 ppm became zero on the eleventh day of inoculation of alga. At 500 ppm concentration of fly ash the alga died on eighth day after inoculation. The chlorophyll content of the alga decreased as the concentration of fly ash increased. It also decreased as the day of experimentation proceed.
