Monthly variation in Phytoplankton population in relation to Physico-Chemical properties of Tapi river was analysed from September-2015 to February -2016. Water samples and plankton samples were collected from two pre-selected sites. Water samples were analyzed for Temperature, pH, Nitrate, Nitrite, Silicate and Phosphate by using standard methods. Quantitative estimation of Phytoplankton was done by using standard method. Pearson correlation was calculated among the various Physico-Chemical variables and Phytoplankton density.
