Present study on algal resource was conducted during 2016 - 2017 in different water habitats of Zomduar river bank of Gossaigaon subdivision under Kokrajhar District, Assam. The area lies between 26.7329°N and 89.8612°E. Water samples were collected from selected habitats for different parameters with the standard methodologies. All total 28 numbers of algal species belongs to three different class viz. Chlorophyceae, Bacillariophyceae and Cyanophyceae were found. Phytoplankton diversity occurs in nutritional rich water bodies and these factors influence the compositional change of phytoplankton. The seasonal changes are the major cause of some cyanophycean algae, though it is not shown any significant effect on other algae.
