Although both phytoplankters biomass and all inorganic nutrients showed spatial variations, the differences between the two stations in the concentrations of nitrate and phosphate (T-value =0.25 for nitrate, 0.48 for phosphate) were not statistically signifcant while those of Chl a and silica were as the t-test values (2.34 for silica and 2.57 for chl a) indicate significancy. In Lake KuRiftu, the correlations between biomass and the macronutrients nitrate-nitrogen (r=0.109) and phosphate (SRP) (r=0.14) were positive but weak while that between silica and biomass was relatively strong (r=0.691) although diatoms were not as important as the other algal groups in Lake KuRiftu.
