Fatty acid composition and total lipids in 13 species of freshwater cyanobacteria isolated from different aquatic habitats of Southern Karnataka were examined. The species grown in BG-11 medium with nitrate were harvested at exponential phase. The GC analysis showed variation in n-saturated, unsaturated and long chain branched fatty acids with respect to(More)
Studies on the occurrence of aquatic hyphomycetes were carried out in Panekal sulfur spring in the Western Ghats, India by incubation of leaf litter and analysis of natural foam and of induced foam. Sampling was done once every three months over a period of two years from September 1989 to June 1991. The temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, and sulfide(More)
Relationships between physico-chemical factors of waters, riparian vegetation, altitude and species richness of the hyphomycete communities in six rivers and a sulfur spring in the Western Ghats of Karnataka were analysed statistically. Linear regression and correlation between log fungal species and riparian vegetation was highly significant. The(More)
Nine isolates of the aquatic hyphomycetes Dactylella aquatica, Flagellospora penicillioides, Flagellospora saccata, Helicomyces sp., Lunulospora curvula, Phalangispora constricta, Tetracladium setigerum, Vermispora cauveriana and Wiesneriomyces laurinus were incubated at different temperatures (5–35 °C) to study their growth on MEA medium. Maximum growth(More)
The mushroom namely, Lentinus polychrous Lév. (on dead wood) collected from the Western Ghat Forests of Southern India was subjected for amino acid, fatty acid and mineral analyses. A total of 17 amino acids were detected in the mushroom sample. All the essential amino acids were present, of which glutamic acid was predominant. The non-essential amino acids(More)
